FT.com and Google

Some time ago I wrote a post Financial Times and Google describing how to read articles from behind the paywall at ft.com. This way does not work anymore, but there is another way, even simpler. Just go to www.google.com paste a link to the article you want to read in the text box, e.g.
http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/a8573532-65bf-11e5-97e9-7f0bf5e7177b.html find it in the search results the link of your interest, click on the small icon with a triangle, pick cached from the dropdown menu, like in the screen below, and viola! You should be able to read your article, maybe some page styles will not be applied but the content should be there.

Google search results, ft.com
