http://xkcd.com/1031/

xkcd

It says that XKCD used an extension to accomplish this on a webpage by using a extension that seems to deal with "regex".

What extension can replace words on a webpage with a word you specify?

the Perl (as people believe it is) script that is related to this is specified as "s/keyboard/leopard/"

Help?

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

    
I'd love to see one that's just a web portal and the substitutions can be passed in as URL params — think Google Translate. Know of anything like that? – fatuhoku Sep 27 '14 at 19:41

This one works fairly well: s/keyboard/leopard. It just needs to be adjusted for Google results.
