Connect to Starbucks Wifi on Arch

If your browser fails to redirect to the Starbucks login prompt when you join the public Wifi at Starbucks, navigate to: http://www.gstatic.com/generate_204. This is a domain maintained by Google to which Chromium will make a cookieless request and check if the response is redirected. Chromium will then open the redirect target in the assumption that it’s a login page, which it is. This was only tested on Chromium.
