    Why not just call it Online Chess? End of.

    Because every single type of chess offered by chess.com could be referred to as online chess.  It's ambiguous.  End of.

    I would have no problem calling it Nimoy Chess. Though, 3D chess might be more fittingly called Nimoy chess.

    How about these?  "Chess, Chess, and More Chess!"  "Chess When You Want It!"  "Chess All the Time -- 24 Hour Chess!"

    This forum has been out for 3 years... I doubt they're ever going to change the name.

    Of course not. Chess.com would not confuse things even further by changing the name of coorespondence chess from "online" to anything else.

    Technically speaking, all chess played on chess.com is on line chess.

    The name has been changed to "Daily Chess." It's a stupid name. But, as H. Nakamura likes to say, "it is what it is."

    It's a mile better than "Online Chess," but still incredibly stupid to invent a new name for it.

    When I hover the cursor over "PLAY" the box drops down and it still calls it "Online Chess"

    Where has the name changed?

    V4 will jump v3, much as Windows 10 will jump 9, then online chess will have a new name, but nobody will care.

    That must be a V3 thing then, because my stats still reference "Online" and I won't deal with V3 until I absolutely have to (when the site is confident enough in it not being a bunch of bugs to make it the one version of the site that exists).
