Finding it increasingly difficult to bring up hotel Captive Portal pages on mobile phones. When logging into a wifi that uses Captive Portal, it's hit and miss as to whether my (multiple) mobile devices will automatically bring up the hotel's login webpage. However one sure way to bring it up is from a browser which will automatically redirect to the Captive Portal until authenticated.

The problem is that Google/Chrome is making this more and more difficult as they push more and more sites to use HTTPS only. The browser redirect is blocked by Chrome with HTTPS. And there's fewer and fewer non-SSL sites out there to use instead.

Anyone have any better suggestions? A reliable http:// site that doesn't use SSL? Thanks.

My go-to has been cbc.ca, which continues to work. captive.apple.com should continue to work as well as that's what it's for.
