For those of you using the Firefox web browser and find yourself being directed to websites like those of the NY Times or Washington Post that ask you to register to view, consider installing the BugMeNot extension.

This software bypasses the sites web registration using Firefoxs right-click context menu based on the BugMeNot.com service.

With the number of political posts I read that contain a link to one of those websites, this is a godsend.
