One way to get around paywalls is to take the url of the article and plug it into - much of the time the page has already been archived without the paywall.

it works more than I've expected it to.


Relatedly, here's an easy bookmarklet to help you dodge paywalls:

javascript:location.href='https ://*/'+location.href;

Create a new bookmark on your browser toolbar, and paste that as the url. remove space after https.

@sultmhoor Using uBlock Origin to disable JavaScript per-site also bypasses the majority of paywalls. Makes the site hugely faster, too!

@ieure Tampermonkey/Greasemonkey and uBlock are always the first things I install in a browser!
