en Hello, I hope you're having a splendid day! I am currently seeking opportunities to expand my business operations by investing in extensions with a significant user base, beginning from 50,000 users and up. No matter if your extension has a modest user base or counts its users in the millions, I am interested and ready to negotiate a purchase. If you are in possession of such an extension and looking to turn it into a profit, please consider reaching out to me. We can discuss the price and proceed with a transparent and secure transaction through a trusted escrow service based in the United States. It's great that Google allows the transfer of extension ownership between accounts, so your Google account ownership will remain intact. If you have any needs, please contact us via the following contacts Whatsapp: +1 (248) 896‑8035 Telegram: t.me/harryysandersonn

en I was looking for a specific article that I had read some while ago and got to access it for free... when I tried recently it was all behind a paywall! This extension really helped me, and even if it can only get 50% of articles, or just the ones that are out there somewhere for free, it's really handy.

en Simple, to-the-point, and gets the job done. It will NOT help you break past a paywall; rather, it will save you time searching for a legal, open-access version of the manuscript.

fr Essayé sur trois journaux français, n'a jamais fonctionné, je comprends même pas comment cette app peut avoir une moyenne de 4/5.

en I am doing research on Roe V Wade. This did not get me past ANY paywall. NOT ONE. Not from medical journals, not from newspapers, not from Substack or Medium, I hit a paywall for every single article and journal I needed access to. Complete waste of time
