Web browser as a client?

Is it possible to connect to my Plex server from another PC outside of my network using just a web browser as a client?

    Yes, you need to use the Plex WebClient which is currently only available for PlexPass subscribers.

    Will this eventually be available to all users or will this remain a premium paid feature?

    The plan is at some point it will not require PlexPass for access.
