BugMeNot is an extension that enables the user to bypass compulsory web site registration, i.e. the New York Times. Most users who try and read an article are linked to a splash site, where they are urged to register for their free account in order to view the content. The problem with mandatory registrations is that most people will enter false information to speed up the process, making this form of demographic surveying a moot point.
The BugMeNot website was created for people to bypass these sites with user created names and passwords. This extension simply links your current URL to their database via the right-click context menu.
BugMeNot is compatibile with current Mozilla builds, Firefox 0.8, and the upcoming Firefox 0.9.
