Might be a good tool, but this user has let his domain name registration lapse, resulting in every translation attempt being redirected to a "parking site", where you can get info on Brittany Spears.

Where to begin?

First, there are many existing translation tools for Firefox already out there. Most of these provide a simple lookup facility underneath the mouse after right-clicking. It's also easy to find a button that sends the current page to Google Translate. Other tools will pop-up a new window with information about the currently highlighted item.

However, imTranslator seems to do not even any of THAT correctly. There is no obvious translate page function. It does not know which language you want to translate from/to. The selected word comes up as a number. NoScript warns me about an XSS (cross-site scripting) problem (an attempt to subvert security??). The Window that pops up takes a long time to load and is not free of status bar items, such as the download status bar.

In short, I see no pros here, and lots of cons.
