I was just wondering what the format of U chess will be? By that i mean will it be a java applet, or will it be plain http as here?
The reason i ask is that i play at work behind a firewall (my company is really trying to create the 'securist' intranet this planet has ever seen) and real time chess so far has been impossible.
I know why it blocks java applets as an open port is required, creating obvious security risks, will Uchess have this problem??
Just a thought, i know that quite a few people who play here started cos thay had no choice so to speak (no offense intended, i, like a lot of people never considered playing corresspondence before i was forced to) It would be nice if this was the first site to remove security issues, i could imagine a few billion people are looking for a site just like that 😉
