The Australian’s annoying paywall quirk

As newspaper paywalls go, The Australian’s isn’t bad.

The A$8 a week charge for a print and on-line subscription seems reasonable. If I lived in Australia I’d take the offer.

There is an annoying quirk. Although the paywall keeps me logged on all day once I’ve entered my email address and password, the site doesn’t this information between sessions. I can’t save log-in details in my browser or with LastPass.

This means I have to manually log-in with a password the first time I visit the site each session.  While this isn’t a big deal, the it slows me down when I’m in a hurry.
