    Paywall/Google incognito view

    For years I've enjoyed the "New York Times" and the "Washingtonian Post" via refreshing the view count of the paywalls via the Google "Incognito mode". They finally caught on. Here is an article showing the history behind it.

    At the risk of violating the forum AUP. The Google Canary mode does what the link says.

    Chrome is getting ready to kill the ability to use ad blockers... That is bad enough.

    But more and more sites are detecting the ad blockers and not allowing people in.

    Another option is to block the ad server sites at the firewall level.
