How to Enable Right-Click on Websites Which Don’t Let You

While the majority of websites still allow for users to using the right click functionality on their web pages, a small minority of sites which are in the business of banking, music and video streaming think that blocking the ability to right-click will stop content theft. Unfortunately, their implementation is not very creative and thus isn’t the most effective method to achieve that goal. It instead creates a frustrating experience for their users since disabling right-click will prevent users from accessing key shortcuts like Forward, Back, Search and Reload which saves a lot of mouse travel. So here’s how to definitively enable right-click on websites that block it.
