It certainly has.

While the documents and other supplementary materials are interesting,
it would be easy for people to miss what's truly stunning about this site.

o Click Browse HW.

o Click Linked Enfolded Hamlet.
(If you have a slow connection click one the line ranges instead.)

o Click on any line number.

You get the full updated (to date) variorum content (collation and
commentary) on that line--all of Furness (vetted by the Variorum team)
plus much, much more that they've assembled and developed--for some
lines, up to and including commentary from the latest editions.

For one example: on TLN 313 (too too sallied/solid) I count 28 pages of
single-spaced commentary, ranging from 1723 to 2002.

It is a work in progress--some lines still have no commentary at all
(like, for instance, all of V.ii), and you even run across some
remaining notes the editors have written to each other--but it's a
fairly magisterial work in progress.
