Your online gift buying experience is about to get easier for those using Opera browsers.

Opera

If you always hated having to open a new browser tab just to do your currency conversions, Opera is going to make you a lot happier this holiday season.

The latest update to the company's desktop browser will feature a built-in converter that's easily accessible by simply highlighting an item's price and the browser will display the converted rate above.

Do note, however, that the rates are from the European Central Bank and you may get a different rate from your bank's credit card.

The update to the browser follows other improvements announced earlier this year, including a free built-in VPN service to let users bypass geo restrictions as well as for watching videos in HD quality (1,280 x 720 pixels).
