Hi team,
You should EXPLICITLY inform the user that the navigation to the web application in Flask should be done through the browser in the embedded terminal window on the right!!!
I got stuck for a while until I realized that navigating truly by using my browser(Google Chrome) would not be recognized by the exercise.
Please clarify this and simply state the navigation the web application has to be done through the browser application seen in the right!

Good point, @david.bador.
