India has a multilingual society and most Indians are polyglots, capable of speaking several languages. However, many of them would not be familiar with all those scripts. Thus, the script may be a barrier to access content in some of the languages. This paper presents a browser plugin to Google Chrome, which instantly transliterates a website present in any Indic script to Kannada. Our plugin exploits the Unicode block parallelism and also uses a rule-based approach to transliterate web pages to Kannada. This enables a polyglot user to read online documents in other Indic scripts through Kannada script. Currently, it supports transliteration from Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Bangla, Gujarati, Odiya, Punjabi, Sanskrit and Hindi pages. The quality of transliteration was scored by 45 users on a scale of 1 to 5 and a mean opinion score of 4.6 has been achieved.
