Automatically converts units and currencies on web pages to familiar values, so you don't have to find that calculator again.
** UPDATE ** : Currency conversion does not work anymore. The exchange rate source has been switched off. I'm looking for affordable/free alternatives, but it won't work till I find one.
autoConvert acts as an interpreter for the reader by automatically converting values on web pages from foreign unit systems to your home unit system.
E.g. a person in the US planning a road trip in Europe does not have to worry about how far 230kms will be, as she will see the value as on the page. Similarly, a tourist from India flying to the US will automatically see a 20kg check-in baggage limit in place of the original.
The relevant values are highlighted on web pages, and the original/converted values can be checked on mouse-over.
For currency conversions, the exchange rate used is also provided in the mouse-over bubble.
Choose from Imperial and Metric unit groups, or a custom combination of these, are supported.
