The New York Post recently began enforcing a paywall as over the weekend, visitors were surprised when they navigated to the Post's site on their iPad and were greeted with a message telling them to pick up the iPad app.

There is a workaround. We found that some browsers, such as Fraktol and iLunascape allowed us to view the website, while browsers like Atomic Lite and Mobile Safari did not. Crappy Opera for iPad showed us the mobile website, but that's better than the paywall. If the browser has a private mode or a way to change/block the user agent, you may still be able to see it, but we can confirm that as of the time of our writing, the browsers we mentioned above will work.
