Quick currency conversions using GoogleOctober 7, 2009
I’ve used http://www.xe.com for a long time to convert Australian dollars to and from US dollars, and it’s a great little website.
I must’ve been hiding under a rock ‘cos I only recently discovered that Google search does currency conversions on the fly from the Google search box. It’s probably been around for ages, but it was new to me!
Here’s what to do:
In the Google search box, enter the value and currency code you want to convert from (e.g. 39.95 USD), followed by the word ‘in‘ and the currency code you want to convert to (e.g. in AUD). Press Enter to see the result. Done. No need to go to another website to find it out.
