"Project Naptha automatically applies state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms on every image you see while browsing the web. The result is a seamless and intuitive experience, where you can highlight as well as copy and paste and even edit and translate the text formerly trapped within an image." http://projectnaptha.com/
This plugin is so cool, it makes me want to learn all about computer vision algorithms just so I can understand how it works! And it does work. I installed it and tried it out, and I have to say I'm still amazed. It works very well. This will save me a lot of time!
