I found a way to read ft.com articles for free.

I would recommend using firefox.com web browser (Firefox 3.6.18) from filehippo.com

Then click Tools (Alt-T) and
Select Add-Ons (3rd one down the Tools' drop down menu)
Install Fastest fox
addons.mozilla.org/en-…er/

download.cnet.com/Fas…tml

then on restarting your web browser FireFox 3.6.18
you can visit 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!

eg: ft.com/per…eek

google.com/sea…lus

ft.com/cms…tml

meeeeow

It's a good workaround, you don't need the plugin of course, you can just search for the title wrapped in quotes in Google.
It won't work until Google has indexed the FT content, and if the headline is a common sentence Google will return any number of matches; add site:ft.com to restrict your search results.

Works, nice one OP!
