Irritating Web Sites

I often check in with Instapundit looking for interesting links, and the Professor often has links to the NY Post and NY Times. Recently, I’ve found that the NY Post wanted me to use their app when I’m using my iPad or iPhone. I ran a similar problem today with the Times.

I don’t like to have to register in order to visit a web site, and I’ve found a work around for these two sites. They seem to be detecting that I’m running Safari under iOS. When I log in using another browser such as Opera, I’m not diverted away to app sales or registration screens.

Opera isn’t as pretty as Safari, but it works well and is a free download from the App Store.
