Google has enhanced our lives in all sorts of ways, with voice apps, mail, maps, and so on. But they also do the more mundane, such as Google Translate
I've found that you can use Google Translate as a sort of lazy man's proxy/filter avoidance. Where I work, we've got a web content filtering tool that, for the most part, blocks inappropriate content, but is most certainly not immune to false positives -- blocking stuff that's not in any way objectionable. Maybe it's blocking on something as stupid as a word found in a URL, say, if you wanted to learn about some birds
. In my case, I was looking for some technical discussions related to my work, but my employer's network filtering app told me (erroneously) that it was a gambling site.
