Firefox 2 tip: autocomplete in search box

As Firefox 2 is set to release this Tuesday, I just want to share this neat trick with you.

Use the Google search box in top right corner as a simple calculator. This is really handy for fast lookups, calculations, word definitions, currency conversions.

In short, you can use all features Google makes accessible from their search field.

    Also works with currencies:

    123 DKK in USD


    123 Danish kroner = 20.9522187 U.S. dollars

    Sadly, the currency conversion only works to US Dollars, and not to Euros.

  3. Thomas Watson Steen Says:

    As far as I can see, it works great with Euros. Try for example “123 DKK in EUR“.

    But for some reason I do not see the auto complete working with currency conversion directly in the browser :(
