๐Ÿ’ก ArticleCache - read past the paywall

Paywalls are everywhere. This newsletter has some!

One thing about the internet is that publishers often allow some traffic to view a link and read it's content, and paywall the content later (for example if the article is popular).

๐Ÿ’ผ ๐Ÿง  Build an extension that gets web surfers past paywalls

The average person doesn't know what Reader Mode is (and they don't use Firefox).

The opportunity here is to build a Chrome/Firefox add-on that activates on any site with a paywall and instantly gives people a way to travel to a version of the site without the paywall.

You won't be first to market (you don't want to be, anyway!), but the others that do it have not reached critical mass -- there's opportunity here.
