Found a bug?
Break Down the Walls currently has a few features.
- It adds a button to your toolbar which, when clicked, will open the current link (unless it is an Amazon link, see below) in one of sci-hub's mirrors. So it takes one click to take from the journal page of an article to its PDF.
- It adds 'Download PDF' to your context menu (right click menu). When you are searching for an article on Google Scholar or somewhere else, you can right click the link and click on 'Download PDF' to directly download the PDF if it is on Sci-hub.
- If you right click on an Amazon link and click 'Download PDF' or click the toolbar button when viewing an Amazon page, if you are viewing a book Break Down the Walls will search Library Genesis for you and open the search page.

Found this little gem on Reddit. It works swell, even with Amazon books! It's insanely good. A "must have" for any student or graduate student doing research.
