"When an Unpaywall user lands on the page of a research article, the 
software scours thousands
of institutional repositories, preprint servers, and websites like 
PubMed Central to see if an
open-access copy of the article is available. If it is, users can click 
a small green tab on the side
of the screen to view a PDF"

I know that it works on Firefox and Chrome - unsure about any other browser.
