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.

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.
