I briefly review the arguments why the braneworld models with infinite-volume extra dimensions could solve the cosmological constant problem, evading Weinberg’s no-go theorem. Then I discuss in detail the established properties of these models, as well as the features which should be studied further in order to conclude whether these models can truly solve the problem.
