"Captive portal" Wi-Fi usually doesn't redirect HTTPS so trying to navigate
to google.com won't work as Google defaults to HTTPS. Chris is probably
running into the same thing with Yahoo.

Yes, that's why I explicitly gave http://www.google.com/
and not https://www.google.com/
If one reaches the above and isn't ensnared by a captive portal, and
is allowing the relevant JavaScript bits, http://www.google.com/
does a JavaScript driven redirect (or refresh or reload or whatever)
to https://www.google.com/
