As I expressed here many times, the worst decision of BBO administrators was taking away the Windows client to BBO prematurely and turning mandatory the Browser version, which requires Flash Player to run (improperly - count your crashes).

In the meantime everybody with some IT judgement states severe warnings and most browsers block it unless you insist in an exception - which of course is all the time being nagged by your memory management, your firewall and what else.

Now even Adobe states that obsolete Flash Player makes no sense anymore and will be terminated in 2020. I am curious what will be the reaction of administrators! As they chose mandatory Browser/Flash version uniquely (my interpretation) for giving access to rotating adds servers, that are a nuisance during play and constantly put at risk stability of the client performance.

Our HTML5/Javascript version will be ready well before then.

Will the HTML/JavaScript version allow :
  • saving chat to a file on the player's computer?
  • saving hands and play to a file on the player's computer?


Both as was the case with the Windows version.

At the moment it's just a desktop version of the mobile app, with some layout differences to take advantage of the larger screen. The eventual plan is for it to have most of the functionality of the current web version.

Capabilities that we never copied from the Windows version to the web version are way down on the priority list, if on it at all.

Thanks for the info.

thanks, it looks good.
Maybe the green background could be a little more green?

It doesn't fix any of my pet hates in the standard version, such as the inconsistent behaviour when one clicks on one's own username hoping to see the profile, but I guess that wasn't the objective.

It's in the works, this is an unpolished version that we're passing around to people who can't use flash. It's not linked anywhere visible yet.
