Preview any LATIN ALPHABET anywhere. This is what the name should have been. If there are images in your link, which is probably 99.99% of the web : you won't see them. If there's any other letter than A,B,C,D,etc. all you'll see is as a preview of the foreign text is : ���������������������������������������� Great extension ! As long as one doesn't use it for more than 12 seconds.
