Opera 48 Features a Time Zone Converter

As you may be aware, the Opera browser comes with a built-in currency converter. It was added to the stable branch of the app starting with Opera 42. Opera 48 extends this feature with a time zone converter.

The official blog post describes this change as follows.

Whenever you need to know what 14:33:24 CEST, 7:00 PM MST or 12:40 GMT time is on your local clock, just select the text and Opera will check your time.

This also works for a variety of written formats for dates. You can try out these examples here: 03-02-2009 9:12 PDT, or 30-06-2003 10:09 GMT.
