When searching for 100 usd on 10 EUR convert it to the native currency(If region specific search is set by the user) will be highly useful.
So that the price of a products in foreign currency can be converted by right click -> search on DDG :-)

hi vishnu,

I think the feature you're looking for has been around for a while. I'm in the US and when I search 100 EUR I get a wolframalpha conversion instant answer. Changing the region setting gives me the conversion to the appropriate currency. If you don't mind sharing, could you tell me your region so I can debug the problem?

Hi hunter,
Thanks for the reply. I am from India. When i search for 100 usd it gives instant answer of "United States one hundred-dollar bill " from wiki.
I noticed that when i search for 10 EUR i got conversion as instant answer, but when i search for "10€" no instant conversion, "10$" gives instant answer as 10$ = 10

Automatic converting doesn't work for Netherlands (either) where the currency is Euro, if I search $100 I get "$100 = $100". Searching "100 dollar" gives me the right answer though .. (€74.81 (euros) - $100 (US dollars)

Would be nice if the automatic converting would work for other units like lbs > kg, ft > meters, etc.
