Get Around Wiki’s SOPA Protest For The Day

As I'm sure many of you noticed, Wikipedia is protesting SOPA and PIPA. While I agree with their sentiments whole-heartedly, I realize that many people rely on Wikipedia for their work or school activities. Hence, my solution. Add the following as a bookmark on your browser of choice: javascript:$("#mw-page-base, #mw-head-base, #content, #mw-head, #mw-panel, #footer").css("display", "block");$("#mw-sopaOverlay").css("display", "none");document.getElementById("content").click(); Now when you're on Wikipedia, simply click the bookmark to restore that page to it's former glory. EDIT: I've gotten a lot of comments from people claiming that they:

  • Pressed Escape
  • Pressed the Stop button
  • Turned off Javascript
  • Browsed the Mobile Site

This solution created a bookmarklet. That is the most comfortable solution; no timing involved, no need to reduce functionality on your browser and no need to access the mobile site.
