I wish to browse TikTok without a mobile app. Is there a web interface available?
It seems that
youtube-dl somehow can access the videos without a closed source app. How do I browse/search the videos?

At the time of writing, TikTok now has a web interface that can be accessed through a web browser.
Signup page: https://www.tiktok.com/signup/?lang=en
Following page: https://www.tiktok.com/following?lang=en
Trending / "For you" page: https://www.tiktok.com/trending?lang=en or https://www.tiktok.com/foryou?lang=en
Discover page: https://www.tiktok.com/discover?lang=en
The URL format for a specific user's profile page is:
https://www.tiktok.com/@insert username here
E.g., the official TikTok account's profile page is at https://www.tiktok.com/@tiktok
There is currently no search functionality within the tiktok.com web interface. I just use the search query
site:tiktok.com [insert search query here] on a web search engine to search for specific users or videos in TikTok.
