NYClean, a bookmarklet to bypass the New York Times' 10-article limit, no longer works. It is still hosted here, but the information provided appears to be outdated.

Is there a new workaround to bypass the New York Times' paywall?

You can change browsers - you'll have 10 articles per browser per month. The other alternative is using Chrome's incognito mode - Ctrl-Shift-N and browsing the site that way.

Searching Google News for the title or headline of the article often gets you a working link. You can also use either Firefox's Private Browsing or Chrome Incognito windows.

You could try this new bookmarklet.

(or consider paying, if you want the NYTimes to continue paying for quality journalism...)

I have put together a quick solution for this problem. It is not as elegant as earlier solutions, as it requires the user to do 2 clicks.

However, it does have the benefit of working even when the more elegant solutions have failed. Please check out my 2 Click solution on my blog.

Pull this link to your book marks bar. When you’re on a NY Times page and the paywall appears just click it. It will take you to google.com with your article as the top result. Click the link and voila, no paywall.
