Paywall remover

Ever want to read a news article and you get about a sentence in before you get blocked by a paywall? Well here's a way around that.

From the site:

How does it work?

The idea is pretty simple, news sites want Google to index their content so it shows up in search results. So they don't show a paywall to the Google crawler. We benefit from this because the Google crawler will cache a copy of the site every time it crawls it.

All we do is show you that cached, unpaywalled version of the page.

That's sweet. Way easier than disabling Java
