Converber makes it easy to convert from obscure units like furlongs/fortnight

We all need to occasionally convert from one unit to another. If you’re like me and need to translate between English and Metric units on a daily basis, you’ve probably memorized most of the common conversion factors, however there are far too many units out there to memorize them all.

Through the years I’ve used a variety of tools to keep up with this: Thomas Glover’s Pocket Ref, Gieck’s Engineering Formulas, Google, and via Unitsicon on my iPhone, but I’ve never had a unit converter program installed on my PC.

Until today.

Today I discovered Converber. It’s a lightweight piece of Freeware that works the way I want it to: Lots of units, no mass of tabbed dialogs to work through, and a search box that lets me find what I’m looking for quickly. Very cool.
