I have made a little review of chess.com and other popular chess servers.
Here it is:
Hope you enjoy it.
Chess.com is the best!!
chess.com is rigged!
Your review states that chess.com lack variants, but you can play chess 960 here.
This thread will definitely get locked soon.
full of lag. their web chess software has been compromised by hackers
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 has had an interesting existence as the outlaw of the internet chess world. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yahoo!_Chess
"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.
I think fb has 3rd party chess game in it. Good review.
The worst site ever found!
my live chess on chess.com has not worked in weeks. cant get through to chess.com but they are still billing me . avoid this site
chess.com does not have a real phone number.
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.
chess.com is the best internet chess site by far it makes gameknot look like game not, james.
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.
what an inbreeded website. some little biach invents the rules and directs everybody to be nice. way to go small putin's friend
