Best Firefox Add-ons: BugMeNot

By Daniel Scocco

Ever tried to read an article on some newspaper, only to get bugged to register a user account in order to do that? We all have been there, and it’s quite annoying.

To solve this problem a service called BugMeNot.com was created. You just need to specify the website you are trying to access, and the site will give you a list of member created users/passwords you can use. Examples of supported sites are:

  • New York Times
  • Washington Post
  • MegaUpload
  • YouTube
  • IMDB

bugmenot

And the cool thing is that you can install the BugMeNot Firefox add-on, too, which will make the process even faster. Once the add-on is installed you’ll just need to right click on the user/password field and it will fill it out for you automatically.

    I’ve been using BugMeNot for several years now and it’s fantastic. The same folks created RetailMeNot, which is equally useful. I’m just holding out for a Chrome plugin from them.

    just a shame it doesn’t exist for Google Chrome wich i prefer to use.

    This is cool! 😀 It is really a bug me not way, so glad they were able to develop this. Registering takes time especially if I’m in a hurry. Thanks!
