[google.com...]

To use our built-in currency converter, simply enter the conversion you'd like done into the Google search box and hit "Enter" or click the Google Search button

Excellent, I can see myself using that as often as Google's spelling correction.

(It would be good to change the "More about currency conversion" link on local Googles (e.g. uk, de, etc.) to go to googe.com until the local FAQs are updated)

Compared to whats available of free advanced Currency Converters, I see Google´s a primitive one.

See for yourselves... For example:

Quite a cool tool, but I wish to see also "the reference to date and time" where Google takes for currency converter. This reference would help one to ensure that he/she doesn't look at , day(s) week(s) or month(s) old rates.

Poor Xe.com. This is great. Now I can get a price straight from the toolbar.

(this what I requested in one of those big threads when GG asked for ideas)

So Google - do I need your permission to use this on my site?

Seven decimal places - not very clever. Two decimal places would be more meaningful.

Will be very handy, but I agree with sit2510 that they need to put a time reference. I've been checking rates and it has not been very accurate, it's over a cent off of the latest Canadian rate today.

2 dollars per gallon in euros per litre

is another nice example Google put on their Google Friends email newsletter.

(or in reverse up to 6.5 U.S. dollars per gallon is what we can pay in Europe for our petrol..)
