Here are some functioning .web domains registered at IOD:
http://the.web
http://ny.web
http://newyork.web

These can be easily seen on any PC in the world by simple
DNS settings. Please go to http://youcann.org and follow the simple
instructions: in 3 minutes you will browse these domains.
(The same is valid for many TLDs proposed by name-space.com
in its application).

Many .web domains are functioning and they are only waiting
to be put in the A-root server, so that anybody can browse them
without special DNS settings.
IOD has been waiting for this for 4 years, after initial
authorization by IANA.
Afilias is late...
