    I think I'm here to stay for Correspondence chess, but how do other sites compare in live chess games? In terms of Interface, cost, and community.
    Thanks in advance.😵

    I haven't shopped around but chess.com is good for blitz (live chess)
    Choose your time control and go. Plenty of opponents too.
    edit: Its free too 😀

    FICS is probably the industry standard for live chess of all chess time controls, not just blitz.

    Free Internet Chess Server

    So, it's free.* And you can use any interface you can find on the web (and there's plenty).


    * I haven't been on there in a while, so not sure if there are pricing options.
