As the exchange rates between different currencies changes from moment to moment one always has to refer a currency converter website to check the exchange rate a that particular time, at times when I am in need I always refer to xe.com. Here is a beautiful Google Chrome extension which will add currency conversion to your Google Chrome Browser.
This Google Chrome extension serves the purpose of automatically converting the prices (any currency accepted) in a web page to the currency which you want at any web page. If there are any chances of conversions to take place in a webpage, an icon will appear on the address bar (exactly at the end of the address bar) and by opening Currency Converter you can convert it to the desired currency with which you want. This comes with 37 currencies currently supported and good thing is it also supports Indian rupee. As the Google Chrome Extensions are always free, Chrome Currency Converter is also free extension and its newly added to Extension Gallery.
Download & Installation:
Installing this extension is quite similar to installation of any other Chrome extension. You can download the Chrome Currency Converter extension from Google Chrome Gallery here.
If you are using Google Chrome then it easy process for the installation but if you have download the extension using Firefox or any other browser then you need to open the .crx file with Google Chrome and then it would be installed in Google Chrome. Its better to download directly in Google Chrome and I would also recommend that process.
You can popup the mini Chrome Currency Converter by pressing ALT+SHIFT+CTRL+C at anytime in any page in Google Chrome browser. This is how popup window will appear on the extreme top right side of your screen.
The currency rates which are listed in Chrome Currency Converter are provided by Pathfinder Stocks and European Central Bank. You also have option of formatting your numerical digits with decimal operator and thousand separator with the symbols that you want. Many other options are also available in the settings of this Google Chrome Extension. So did you find this extension useful while you are work? Would be happy to see more options added as this extension is newly released.
