Greetings,

I have needed to figure out what the Celsius equivalent in Farenheit is, and I have used this site:

http://www.livingwithmagick.com/tempchart.php

I used to have a link to a really neat one, where the temps followed the cursor, anywhere on the screen. :)

Or you could use what I do: The google search bar in firefox, and enter "X F in C" or the other way around. Also works in an empty address bar.

Yup. It also works for currencies (three-letter code or common symbol (the most used one in case of several ones sharing same symbol)) and many simple mathematical formulas

You're Welcome. :D

Everyone that meets it is always very impressed.
I like that there is a custom tab for you to add what ever you want...
Darned if I can work out what else would be needed though.....
