Add-on for Firefox that can do web page translation locally

This looks cool: #mozilla has released an add-on for #firefox that can do web page #translation *locally* instead of sending data to the cloud.

Mozilla releases local machine translation tools as part of Project Bergamot

The translations add-on is now available in the Firefox Add-On store for installation on Firefox Nightly, Beta and in General Release.

Based on Project Bergamot and implemented in WebAssembly

it’s one of those things like speech recognition that ideally should have always have been local, but the processing and data just wasn’t there yet

Update: I now have directions in the article for enabling dark/light mode using the dev tools for Firefox, Edge, and Chrome without repeatedly changing the system settings while testing. Anyone know how to do it with Safari?

Related: Does anyone know how to test dark/light modes in Chrome or Safari without repeatedly changing the system setting? Firefox has buttons in the dev tools, and Edge apparently has a menu item. But when writing this up, i couldn’t find anything useful with Chrome or Safari.

I wrote up what it takes to add simple #darkmode support to a site so it can have a light theme on light-colored screens and a dark theme on dark screens (and not blast your eyes out). Just CSS media queries and . no JS! #webdev

Hot Take: Any installer that checks to see whether the same or newer version is “already installed” should either be really thorough about what it’s checking, or offer to do a repair install anyway. See also: reinstalling #GoogleDrive on Windows
