No it's not; I read that in about 2 days there - if it includes blogs as well as news stories.
If you are reading 20 articles in two days, then it is probably only fair that you pay. Or if you are that fussed, play around with cookies and browsers to get around it.

I'm not a natural Telegraph reader, but I am a big fan of there being choices in broadsheets and alternative points of view, so I'm pleased that there will be a number of free hits each month so people can follow links to specific articles.

With the Times, I quite often find myself nipping into my local library on the way home from work if something crops us during the day that looks interesting, so this is much easier!

Think I might pay up. 20 per year seems very reasonable.

And as much as I usually disagree with the Guardian, I would probably be willing to pay 20 per year for their online content.

It's free to browse Telegraph with Google Chrome on Incognito Mode.

Chrome has an incognito mode so that history and cookies aren't recorded or registered, and paywalls don't work.

Only as long as the Telegraph lets you read a number of articles for free. If they went the same route as The Time this wouldn't help.

Jeeze! I don't know how long this will work. But more importantly, it works now!

I thought some people would appreciate me sharing info on how you can browse Telegraph for free. Silly me!
