Internet chess


I have for a time used eboard to play chess on the net. I connected via FICS. I think eboard is OK, but I don't think there is enough activity on FICS. On which server should I go to get more than 20 opponents? And which program should I use?

I go to http://games.yahoo.com

They have many games you can play on there including chess. YOu just have to have a java enabled browser.

But I don't wanna use a browser. Isn't there some programs like eboard for those other servers? I remember that kasparov chess also had some download-able program...

You can use "JIN" to play on either FICS or ICC, it's written in Java and works pretty well from what I remember. You can find lots of opponents on ICC, but you can only play as a guest unless you want to pay for a subscription.

Jin chess client
