    Your review states that chess.com lack variants, but you can play chess 960 here.

    I disagree. Never attribute to malice what is more easily explained by ... most of us know how that saying ends. Chess.com outgrew its web delivery paradigm some time ago, but they're not doing too badly all things considered.

    The list of the four best chess sites omits the very best site, tho it is not a free site: The Internet Chess Club. Chess.com is probably the best free site though.

    How does that saying end? And what is a "web delivery paradigm"?

    Well, I wouldn't put Yahoo in the top four. If I knew how many chess sites exist, I would add one to that number to determine Yahoo's place. Even so, the review does a good job of describing the strengths and weknesses.

    Ed Collins' now very old "Yahoo vs. the Chess Servers" remains a useful link, although Chess.com has transcended some of the limitations of websites that are identified there. http://www.edcollins.com/chess/yahoo-vs-servers.htm

    "Yahoo Chess sets itself apart from the pack of more contemporary Internet chess servers in its complete lack of oversight regarding user conduct or chess engine use. Many have called Yahoo Chess the "Old West" or "Wild West" of chess on the Internet."

    Lol that's hilarious. Laughing

    The review doesn't include ChessCube or ICC. The latter is considered the premier chess site for serious players, and the former is an up-and-coming site that is reputed to be good for players just starting out online.

    I appreciate chess.com, and I use it a lot, but I use FICS a lot, too. If Chess.com's services were free forever, I'd prefer it to FICS.

    For me, premiumchess.net is the best one. They just launch a new chess website which i found very fascinating and different compare to chess.com. Their website looks really catchy and not classic.
