For Firefox there is also the excellent FoxReplace Addon. It lets you define arbitrary replacements.
Especially in the light of newspeak this is interesting. (For german there’s the neusprech.org blog with examples of words used in the public debate.)

I downloaded the Firefox extension and it's pretty funny. I notice it only converts that very phrase: "the cloud" with "my butt". So visiting 'talkingcloud.com" delivered only imperfect results. Any mention of "cloud" or "cloud platform" etc. remains unaltered. Still, Google results were hilarious:

"how to incorporate wifi services in my butt"
"click here to download our white paper from my butt"

etc. This plug in has tons of add-on potential.

Ha ha - just tried the Firefox Replace add-on, which is even better. You can replace all mentions of anything with anything else. My websurfing experience just got better.

Almost any statement can be improved by appending "right here in my pants!" I'll have to give this add-on a try.
