I got a “tip” from a colleague in the Brazilian ColdFusion mailing list about using Google to calculate currency conversions. I decided to test it and I’m amazed with the results, not only currency, but also measure units…
Try this, type the following in the search box and see the result:
|250 * euro||220 * Euros = 286.59400 U.S. dollars|
|sterling * 220||British pound * 220 = 325.44600 U.S. dollars|
|180 * pound||180 * pounds = 81.6466266 kilograms|
|yards * 200||yards * 200 = 182.88 meters|

alernatively type in

That’s pretty neat actually.

I will use Googles converter in the future, rather then my online bank.

It’s a good and quick tool, there are actually far more handy tools similar to this one, for example Get the local time anywhere enter simply what time is it to get the local time in big cities around the world, or add the locale at the end of your query, like what time is it hong kong to get the local time there.
