Paywalls are a very annoying part of browsing the net, and I find them increasing in frequency. While I do not mind paying for a service, I get mad when I am enticed into clicking an article just to see I can't read it without paying.

Never mind the moral objections though, let's get around it!

To get around many paywalls, simply add this to the beginning of the URL:

Then Facebook will give you a little warning message, and you click on Follow Link.

There is also a site called which is used both to dodge paywalls and to strip the clutter/ads from the sites. Keep that one in your back pocket as well!

Finally, for sites with a free article limit, it is quite easy to get around. Either clear your cookies and close/reopen your browser, or just browse those articles in incognito/private mode, and those limits will not apply.
