The Economist Paywall Demolisher

Dramatic titles aside this is a grease monkey script for getting past the article viewing limits on The Economist’s website. Install grease monkey and this script and if you get blocked from viewing an article hit the reload button and wait patiently for the page to reload. The tab with the article has to be in the foreground for this to work. You can’t switch to another tab while the page is loading and expect the script to work.

Oh and if your a web dev and you’re setting up a paywall don’t rely on client side cookies alone because we can do shit like this to bypass your paywall.
