We've listened to your feedback and we are happy to announce that it's now even easier to get started with the YQL console. Starting this week you won't have to log in to Yahoo! to try YQL and quickly test a query.
Of course if you want to try all the tables and make the most of Yahoo!'s social graph you'll still need to sign-in so we can access your account, but have no fear there is an easy link at the top of the page.
We hope you'll continue to enjoy YQL, and tell all of your friends.
