not just informative, it's fun too

online converters - they do kilograms to ounces conversion, inches to centimeter etc

imagine this: in the first text box, we enter 'earth', second text box enter 'sun', then in third box we enter say 'diameter'. the result shows comparing sun and earth by diameter and shows that "Sun's diameter is 11 times that of earth"

one more example: human, blue whale, weight - answer: "a blue whale weighs 150,000 times of an adult human

last one: Eiffel tower, burj khalifa, height - answer: "Approximately 3 Eiffel towers stacked on each other will get the height of burj khalifa"

and here is next version: graphical comparator: you type boeing 787 and blue whale, an image appears as the result. We see 23 boeings staked up to appear in the shape of a blue whale. which means a blue whale is roughly the size of 23 boeing 787s.

Such graphical comparisons are to be manually prepared so far. I don't know any ready reckoner. Please enlighten if you know.

       There should be a button on the comparitor called MATE! If clicked, the program will show you the hybrid offspring of the two things compared.
