Side-stepping the SMH/Age paywall : australia

As I've posted in another thread, the easiest and 'maintenance free' way:

In Chrome:

Settings>Advanced>Content Settings>Manage Exceptions

Add smh.com.au as an exception and set to 'block'. Proceed to do this
with every other paywall provider, if you really want to feel dirty.

for some reason my firefox is nothing like that : for people with something that behaves like firefox 22 on osx:

firefox > preferences > privacy:

"use custom settings for history"

After this you should see more options including one:

exceptions - where you can block for specific domains

yep thanks. I'm a recent Chrome convert so I'm not as sharp with it as I
am with Firefox. Not sure if it's just the smh.com.au based ones that
need blocking (haven't done testing to see if it's any of the fairfax.*

Cheers dude.

Another alternative is to go through the Canberra Times, which has basically the same content as the SMH and is not yet paywalled
