If you go through products online on e-commerce sites or read reviews on your favorite blogs like us. Some poor websites don't personalize the foreign currency into the local currency for visitors. With third-party tools, it becomes hard to find the conversion rates because they don't update the foreign exchange rates regularly or the procedure may be difficult or they don't support all currencies. It's said Google can find everything, Let's see if Google could help us solve this problem. 

There is a Google search feature that lets us find the currency exchange rates of almost any country (in Dollars, Euros, Pounds, Rupees, Yen, etc).
