Auto-translating the current page

YubNub can be useful in so many ways. For example, let's say you go to a page in another language. Here's one written in ... Spanish, I guess? Anyway, I don't need to know because the autotr command will figure out what language it is in and convert it to English for me. And if you've installed YubNub as a keyword in your browser, all you need to do is stick a "y autotr" before the URL in your address bar, and presto, it's automatically translated into English for you!

This technique also works great for the "tiny" command (which turns very long URLs into very short ones). Just stick a "y tiny" before the URL in your address bar, and tiny will convert it to a tiny url.
