    personaly i think hungarian is more secure because by moving the g pawn allowing your bishop to be fianchetto'd on g2 you will pretty much always castle kingside and you dont want the f g or h pawn moved to much

    They should, all the other chess programs do. It's not like chess databases are valuable, you can even download them for free. I only paid for one because I like chessmaster. That is the only thing I don't like about chess.com ...the small database.

    Why does chess.com have such a small database of this opening? I had to buy a different chess program to get a bigger database.

    What happens if white completely ignores the gambits and continues on with development?

    This is a bad opening and white hopes you will take the pawn.  I heard about it in the book "King's Gambit" by Paul Hoffman.  It's for lazy people who want a quick win.

    With this move white just tries to shoot himself in the foot.  Sure black might be confused for a little bit but if he plays correctly he will have the opening advantage.  I don't see why anyone would play this as white except     against amateurs and during bullet chess.

    In Blitz, I play almost nothing but 1. f3 or 1. g4. They are sound, solid openings, although as with any opening one has to have practice. A flexible, cautious player will do just fine and enjoy a superb advantage against the great majority of players who are totally unfamiliar with these openings. Those who underestimate 1. f3 or 1. g4 will deliver an easy 1-0 to White. There is no first move that White cannot make and win with. With Black, it is a different story, but only by a little bit.
