asked you to register (giving them all sorts of personal info...) just to read
These folks at www.BugMeNot.com
have Mozilla and IE plugin's to help!!
After installing the plugin, simply right click somewhere on the offending
registration page and a valid logon to the site will be provided for you
Popular sites like NYTimes, Chigago Tribune, etc.. are included. You don't have to provide anymore information just to read a FREE article!!
I don't think they provide any logon's for PAY sites, just FREE sites that require registration.
