Also via Tor2web, we enabled on one of the node Tor2web mode:

1st request: 0m7.705s
2nd request: 0m1.898s

Please note that currently Tor2web.org is running 2 nodes and only one
of them run Tor2web mode with Tor2web 3.0:
burninetliliito5.tor2web.org (t2w 2.0 + standard tor)
burninetliliito5.tor2web.org (t2w 3.0 + t2w mode)
