    "ID Software's browser-based competitive version of the classic first-person shooter Quake is nearly ready for the public, with the Quake Live open beta kicking off next week.

    Statistics are being wiped and inactive players from the closed beta culled as Id prepares for the launch of open beta testing on Tuesday, February 24th. Announced in February of last year, Quake Live is a web-based version of Quake Quake created mainly for competitive play, with rich matchmaking features and leader boards to keep the competition heated. The whole thing runs in your browser for free, supported by in-game ads courtesy of IGA Worldwide.

    To sign up for the open beta, simply point your browser at the official website come February 24th."

    It isn't just Java or Flash, they make you install something to play.

    Great news!, I hope it plays as smooth as the original Q3.
    Although I always preferred Unreal Tournament to the that one I'll be fun to play for free.

    Yeah, I know. The fast pace is really something else, it's way harder then Unreal Tournament that way.
