I found a way to read www.ft.com articles for free.
I would recommend using www.firefox.com web browser (Firefox 3.6.18) from www.filehippo.com
Then click Tools (Alt-T) and
Select Add-Ons (3rd one down the Tools' drop down menu)
Install Fastest fox
then on restarting your web browser FireFox 3.6.18
you can visit www.ft.com website and use the mouse and highlight the headlines you want to read, then a box of 4 icons appears. then click google's icon, it will automatically bring you to seach that article title, then click from google's search, you will be able to read the full article for free!
