Webapps has been added yesterday, website is in closed beta and it's not possible to see something on the website when you are not logged.
But if you use the API you can get information.

In this wanted ? In this case why don't let the website available in RO ?

This is .

The site being closed beta prevents people from participating so as to prove that the committers are actually, well, committed.

Being able to read data out doesn't allow participation, so we figured why not allow it.

+1 for this open (data) design decision :) – Steffen Opel Jul 1 '10 at 9:05
+1. To add to your point, what if someone in the beta want to use an app. This decision makes sense. – Yacoby Jul 1 '10 at 10:06
