This may take some of  your valuable time and may also require you enter your email address to register. All of this effort to just view a single article or download a file,document or software! I think it is too much, so BugMeNot is here to save us from all this frustration and time wastage that we are going to face. All you have to do is to register on these type of annoying websites is to go to BugMeNot website, enter the website address that you want to login to and hit enter. Then it will fetch all the login accounts that are saved in its database for the current website. These login details for different websites are entered by people like you in this website to help save time and frustration for the other people that want to do anything useful with these kind of websites.  You can also judge the validness of an account based on the reviewers votes that are reporting the success or failure of  this particular login information. User reported success rate for login details is shown with each of the submitted login credentials for a website.

Now the real fun begins when you use a Firefox extension with the same name that further facilitates the process of logging in to these kind of sites with the click of a button. Yes! that’s right all you need to login to such a website is the click of a mouse button on a menu option from the Firefox context-menu.Just install the extension and after installation visit the website you want to login as usual and go to login area and right click for the Firefox context menu to appear and select the option "Login with BugMeNot" and you are done, as the rest of the work is on the shoulders of "BugMeNot" extension that will fetch the login details from the BugMeNot website and enter those details automatically for you. It is intelligent enough to try the next login account if the first one did not work and so on until all the login accounts for the website in question are tested or you are able to login successfully in to the website, depending upon which of these occurs first.

I have tried it on many websites from within Firefox and it worked beautifully but please do note that for some website there may not be any login details entered on the BugMeNot website and for those sites you are out of luck but for many sites it does work. Another important point to note is that  because this extension is quite old so it may not be compatible with the latest Firefox 3 beta 2. So you will require to install Firefox Nightly Tester Tools extension to force the compatibility. Other than this minor nuisance it works well with Forefox 1.5,2.0 and 3.0. I highly recommend this extension for any Firefox user that needs to login to these kind of websites on regular basis that forces you to login even for the "click of a mouse"(yeah).
