This add-on is available for Firefox, Chrome and Safari (and allegedly all other browsers) and allows you to switch between character sets on websites. Note that the conversion is of course automatic, so while it's useful and will work most of the time, it can't possibly get everything right. Converting from traditional to simplified ought to be much easier than the other way around, considering the large amounts of many to one mappings between traditional and simplified Chinese.

The Chrome add-on stopped working for me a while ago, but the bookmarklets work fine.
