This is a great hack. Say you work in a company that blocks Web surfing to certain Web sites.
O’Reilly posted a super-cool tip about using Google translation services as a kind of Web proxy and bypass this limitation!
You just need to type the following URL:
What you’ll get is the translation (English to English!) of the page you want to see…
Your connection is directed to a google.com page so this page won’t be blocked (would be blocked only with google.com on the black list), no matter what’s the content.
This may be a great hack, but as an IO this is really bad news for some of my users… no more full access to google for you :p
