This extension allows you to access Medium articles for free on both normal browsers or Incognito browsers by clearing the cache that only belongs to Medium. Also, all Medium-backed publications like TowardsDataScience, The Mission, Personal Growth, etc. are included to free access. There are many articles about how to access Medium articles for free. The most common way is to open the articles on the Incognito browser. However, it is a very cumbersome way to do it. If you keep the Incognito browser open, you cannot read premium articles more than 3. You need to restart the Incognito browser or clear the cache on it manually for every 3 articles that you want to read. This extension mainly automates this process. Features: - It works on both normal browsers and Incognito browsers. - You can decide on which browser it should run. Since it clears the cache on medium, you cannot keep your session open. In this case, you can run it only on Incognito. - It is working automatically. Do not need to click some buttons manually. Set your rules and leave it to run behind the scene. - You can disable the extension when you do not need it without uninstalling it. CHANGELOG: **0.0.4** - Mixed(Normal/Incognito browsing) mode is added. You can read paid medium articles for free in a new Incognito tab using 'Command+Shift+2' (for Mac users) or 'Ctrl+Shift+2' (for Windows users) shortcuts easily without loosing your session in the normal browser. - Documentation/working is improved. A guide is added for enabling incognito mode and using the extension with 100% benefits.
