Periodic Table Goodie

I really appreciate the instant answer for periodic table queries. For example if you type in "Zirconium" it tells me that it is an element or if I type in "Atomic mass of Chromium" it brings up the answer, 51.996 u. However it took me a while to find out about this goodie as I was not typing in the right keywords.

Would it be possible to add triggers for phrases like "Cr element" or even just "Cr" to bring up the information about Chromium (though perhaps the chemical symbols could only apply for more unusual letter combinations like Fe or Xe - not O or N for example as this might spam more common searches).

Its also great that the badge changes colour depending on the type of element (e.g. transition metal) but it would be better if it said this class in words as well - as a novice user I just assumed that the colours were random.

I hope that you appreciate my suggestions. I've signed up to DuckDuckHack but I'm not sure that I'm up to modifying others' goodies quite yet. Thanks
