If you see this annoyance on websites not included in the list above, let me know which website, and I'll add it. Please remember that this script cannot bypass websites that deliberately hide their content behind a paywall. All the content must be on the page for the script to do its job.

Brave is another browser worth considering that may make this script obsolete. It is a fantastic browser based on Chromium — Google's open-source for Chrome. Most anything you can do in Chrome, you can do in Brave without the need for ad blocking and greater privacy.
