Mac edition of Quake Live 'getting close,' says id

Quake Live for Mac coming

The Mac and Linux editions of Quake Live are rapidly approaching release, claims id Software's Marty Stratton. The game is a web-based version of id's first-person shooter, Quake III Arena, playable through browser software instead of a separate executable. At the moment however, Live can only be accessed as a beta through the Windows versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Both the Mac and Linux conversions "have proved more difficult than expected," according to Stratton, but id is nevertheless said to be "getting close" to completion. Internal testing is scheduled to begin this month, with some form of public availability coming the moment id thinks the software is ready. A single programmer is handling the conversions of Quake Live, says Stratton.

    um

    So what is this, a plug-in for the browser? Isn't that the same thing as a 'stand-alone' program?
