THIS ADDON IS NOW MALWARE Rated 1 out of 5 stars

AS OF 1.0.5 THIS ADDON ADDS MALWARE TO YOUR BROWSER. DO NOT INSTALL THIS ADDON.

The author has slipped in a 1.0.5 update with NO CHANGELOG.

The changes in 1.0.5 consist of adding advertisements to your Google, Yahoo!, Bing and Ask.com results. This means that ALL your search queries is being sent off to a third-party. Not only is it impossible to disable this "feature" (other than uninstalling the addon), the advertisements have no indication they come from the addon "gTranslate" and the advertisements link to phishing-like URLs, such as "google-co.com" (which isn't owned by Google). This is completely unacceptable and I have reported this addon to Mozilla.

I have confirmed the above by downloading the addon and examining it's source code (version 1.0.5)

I encourage users to find an alternative. This is what I've replaced gTranslator with:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/translate-this/?src=search

I hope this helps users that intended to install this and those that retrieved the update silently.

Screw you, author.
