I'd add a date to the timezone converter. For example - if it is 10pm in Toronto on the 1st, then it is 8am somewhere in India on the 2nd.



I agree! Date would be useful. People worldwide refer to historical documents in our system by their timezone, and I have to convert them to EST in order to find them. Sometimes I use the CPAN library Date::Manip or the Unix date command to do datetime conversion or math. But your website is much simpler and better than each of us coming up with such solutions on our own..


Thanks for the suggestion. It's true omitting dates can affect some conversions. I left them out for speed/simplicity but might have be the wrong tradeoff.


I was about to suggest adding a 'previous/next day' somewhere but I see you already did that :)

Nicely fixed.
