Convert text from other apps using autoConvert Select
Copy the text in the other app (say, from an email in Outlook), click on the autoConvert Select button in Chrome, and paste the text in the text box. autoConvert will instantly convert all units and times found in the text.
Convert more than 6 items from a web page

Offline conversions of units and times
Google provides a handy converter for units and time zones. autoConvertSelect makes it one better by providing similar functionality even without an internet connection. Like before, open Chrome, open the autoConvert Select window, and type in whatever you want coverted. It’s done, pronto.
Made a minor tweak to the app icon, just enough to marginally differentiate from the now-deprecated autoConvert extension.
AutoConvert Select reads the dates provided with times when converting time zones. As usual, just select the date and time with the time zone, and the conversion appears. When the extension is unable to parse the date, the time zone is converted assuming today’s date.
For the wanderers, the readers, the chefs and bakers, the measuring, tinkering DIYers, and for anyone else who struggles to convert feet to cm, or ºC to ºF, or wonders how many grams is it when the recipe says a cup of sugar in the cake.
With autoConvert Select, just select the text you convert, and the conversion is right there in the corner of the browser. No clicking, no searching. Right there… automagically.
Select a value in metric units, say 16 km, and the conversion will be imperial (10 miles). Select a value in the old, imperial units, say 22ºF, and the conversion will be into metric (-5.6ºC).

autoConvert Select only converts units. Unlike the older autoConvert for Chrome, it does not convert currencies yet. I am still looking for a free source for currency rates before I can provide currency conversion.
autoConvert Select converts the first six values in a selection. You may have to select multiple times to see more conversion.
autoConvert Select supports all websites – including the newer React based websites that the older extension used to hang on.
