Not sure if this is widely known or not (I don’t see the feature noted on the Google site anywhere), but if you put “time $somecity” into Google you’ll get back the current local time for that city — including international ones.
Being a big fan of Firefox Quicksearches, I created and modified one so that you can perform this query using a single letter (I use “t”) right from the address bar like so:
Here are the steps for making your own:
- Go to Google and right-click the search field within Firefox.
- Select “Add a Keyword For This Search”.
- Name it whatever you want, and give it a keyword (or keyletter like “t”, “ti”, or “time”).
- Save the bookmark and then go back in and edit its properties.
- Modify the properties string by adding “time%20” before where you see “%s”.
