Something I love very much in Opera and I miss all browsers is the feature of when selecting some measure (money, distance, temperature) and it detects that it is in a non-standard measure of the user, it automatically converts, for example: dollar for real or miles for miles. And since Microsoft Edge came into Open Source, it would be interesting to bring this feature directly to Chromium.

@Guilherm456,

 

That is a great idea and thanks for providing us a screenshot.  I will make sure your suggestion about automatic conversion goes to the right team.

 

Thanks,

Hi,

I really liked this feature in Opera Chromium. As a Canadian user/buyer, this feature has given me a fast idea about how much is the conversion USD <=> CAD or other devise. A really helpful feature I would like see in Edge Chromium.
