Google currency converter

Why didn’t anyone tell me about Google’s ability to do currency conversions before? I just learned about it at Geeky Info and think it’s a feature I’ll be using lots.

All you have to do is enter an amount that you want to convert into a normal Google search field and it’ll do a current conversion for you.

So to find out what one US dollar equals in Australian dollars (down to 8 decimal points!) you just enter:

1 USD in AUD

and here’s what you get when you ‘search’


Don’t know the country code? No problem try entering:

currency of Britain in Australian money

- or 5 British pounds in Australian money

Handy stuff for a blogger wanting to convert their earnings into a local currency.
