    I like live online chess because it is web-based, no software to download. The book somehow reminded me of other reasons for having interest in live online chess. In the past, most live online chess sites require you to download and install software. Nowadays Chess.com, Caissa, ChessFriends.com, etc., allow you to play live, real-time chess using only your web browser.
