  Description     : Firefox browser plugin to bypass various paywalls

Add-on allows you to read articles from (supported) sites that implement a
paywall. You can also add a domain as custom site and try to bypass the
Note: this plugin may leak information about your web browsing based on the
techniques used to bypass paywalls. For example, for some sites it will load

certain article. The plugin only operates on sites that you opt-into.
