The module obtain the exchange rate from the Google Finance site. In add of the exchange rate the module become available also a very simple currency converter allowing to switch betwwen the two currecnies interested and calculate on real-time the conversion of a specific sum of money from one currencty to the other. This converter can be show or hide using the provided link inside the module. The exchange rate is loaded from the external site using AJAX when the main page is fully loaded. This for avoid to slow down the loading of the main page waiting the result from the external site. Another feature is to "store" the just loaded exchange rate into the user session params. This solution has been added to avoid to reload again the exchange rate every time the users visit the page where the module is present. Using the configuration settings is possible to set the time (in minuts) after passed the module must reload an updated exchange rate.

This is a nice looking module, easy to use and setup, but I could only get one to work per page. I tried loading multiple modules with different currencies on the same page, but only the first one worked.
