It may not look like much, but this handy little program instantly converts U.S. standard measures to their metric equivalents and vice versa. Metric Converter's small, utilitarian interface is divided into Temperature, Distance, and Weight tabs. It can convert commonly used measurements such as Fahrenheit, feet, inches, and pounds. Just fill out the fields for any unit and hit Calculate. Results are instantly displayed. The program offers two modes, one for U.S. standard to metric and one for metric to U.S. standard. Metric Converter is a freeware program that anyone can use, and, though not particularly feature-rich, it works quickly and efficiently.
