Bypass/Avoid registration to browse forums

Many websites on internet need you to register to acess the information, like many forums force you to register to have acess to their discussion pages. Below are some techniques that I found to bypass compulsory registrations on websites.

Bugmenot- Free login Details to bypass compulsory registration

Bugmenot is a groovy website to find and share logins for websites that force you to register. Just fill in the web adress in the search box and Login details will be provided if available for that particular site.
For more information on using Bugmenot, you can see Wikihow Article on using Bugmenot.
Also you can download Bugmenot Firefox Extension to bypass compulsory web registration via Firefox’s right-click context menu.

Google Bot

Most of the websites today get maximum number of visitors from google. So all the websites including ones that require registration, would like to see their content indexed by Google. Therefore as soon as they detect the google bot, they allow it to acess pages that are normally restricted to human users, so if a normal human being visits the website using a web browser, he is politely redirected to the “Please register first” webpage.
There is a cool Firefox Extension called Firefox User Agent Switcher that lets you switch the user agent so that the reg-only website is fooled to think that you are a web spider.

You can download the Firefox user agent switcher extension. After downloading and installing the extension you have to do the following:-
Goto Tools>>Extensions>>Select User Agent Switcher
Click Options button and select User Agents from the Sidebar.
Then click Add to add new User Agent.
In the description box write “Google Bot” and in the User Agent Box write “Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)” .
Done. Enjoy !

Bypass Registration on Websites with Google Cache

This trick even work on some websites that usually require paid registration in order to access their content.
Find the exact page that you want in a list of Google search results. For example, if you know there’s a page on RegisteredAccess.com that has some data about turtles that is only accessible to registered users, you can search on google for “site:RegisteredAccess.com turtles”. Once you find the link to this article, you can simple click on “Cached” to see what version Google has.
