Tip: Age Calculator on Ancestry's Search Form

I'm trying to get smarter and faster with my searches, so that I have more time for analysis.  The following is an example of one of the many time-saving tools that are right there that I have not been using, or even acknowledging.

How have I missed this for the past 5 years??

You'd think I would have clicked on that little calculator icon at least once this whole time, but no.

Whenever I have to figure out someone's birth year in relation to another year, I always open a new tab, type in the date minus the age, and Google shows figures it out.  Talk about an unnecessary step!  Ancestry can do it all for me right there on the search page.
