Quake 2 Ported to HTML5


In the port, we use WebGL, the Canvas API, HTML 5 audio elements, the local storage API, and WebSockets to demonstrate the possibilities of pure web applications in modern browsers such as Safari and Chrome.

Update 2: Several readers report that it’s no joke. The FAQ states that they can’t post an online demo due to licensing issues for the resources.
