I can’t even imagine how much good this can do for curious people who are not rich, like people in developing countries.
Of course I had to test it and, yes, it works, blindingly fast. It’s way faster than paying (which usually involves an annoying number of steps).
Some people may have to step up their game. Personally I don’t mind paying for access, I’m fortunate enough to be able to afford it. But it really should be made simpler and more convenient.
