robertogreco : paywalls   3

Begone Paywall - Chrome Web Store
"A simple paywall bypasser for news websites because I'm a broke college student.
Begone Paywall is exactly what the name suggests: a paywall bypasser.

All soft paywalls operate using `localStorage` and cookies. Every time you read an article, the website stores that information in the `localStorage`. For the majority of the time, you could simply use incognito mode to access the article. However, I noticed that some sites started adding in an incognito blocker which is super annoying and requires a user to manually clear `localStorage`. This extension automates that process.

Unfortunately, this paywall bypasser does NOT work on hard paywalls like the ones on the DailyTelegraph (http://dailytelegraph.com.au)

Also, this might log you out of sites like Quora.

Currently working on a way for users to add their own lists to this extension rather than having me hard code all the sites in.

Please submit an issue to GitHub: https://github.com/DevinMui/Begone-Paywall

Or email me at dmui@usc.edu for issues/list updates.

Thank you!"
