Any blogger using this add-on will have access to blogs and web material written in many different languages and that is a good thing. The only limitation to getting these blogs is the search engines that try to predict what you want and end up giving you websites written ONLY in your language! (Google take note).
One way around it is to go to a non-english version of the search engine like google France and search for your terms. Any results will come with the translate this page clip of google and even if you go direct to the site, Foxlingo immediately comes to the rescue.
