While the currency converter is pretty self-explanatory, it does have a couple of interesting features worth explaining.
The live rates tab in the top right tab shows live exchange rates of all pairs. It's not that useful for trading, but it does come in handy if you want to quickly see what the rates of different currencies are at a glance.
The historical rates tab lets you see how a currencies exchange rate has changed over time. Simply choose two currencies and then enter the time period you want to see the historical rate for. A chart will show at the bottom showing the what the rate was for that period of time.
A neat little table that shows currency values in common amounts like 5, 10, 3. This is useful for holidays or trips where you quickly need to know what the exchange rate is in common everyday values to make purchases.
