The Converter is the contextual unit converter, currency converter and timezone converter for Firefox – experience the web with familiar metrics! The Converter is a no-thrills tool. It aims to be intuitive for the average user during regular text reading. You can’t specify the precision. You can’t tweak the resulting units. You don’t get the results in several formats. If you need any of that fancy stuff for scientific purposes you should probably use another tool.
