Have you ever connected your Chromebook to an open Wi-Fi network and wondered why Internet was not working? It could be as simple as being trapped behind a captive portal but how would you know?

The chromium team is currently tackling this issue behind the experimental chrome://flags/#network-portal-notification flag in Dev channel. When enabled, a notification will be displayed if Chrome OS detects you're connected to a network behind captive portal and will give you the opportunity to open the network's login page.
