Firefox Nightly support!
   Hooray! I'm excited to announce that we were able to identify the bug which was preventing WadJS from running in Firefox, and once we had a simplified test case, the team over at Mozilla was able to provide a fix in a matter of hours. That fix has already made it into the latest Nightly builds, meaning that you can now use WadJS to view Doom levels in Firefox Nightly, and that this fix should make its way into a release version very shortly. Thanks, Mozilla!

   Now we're just waiting on Edge...their slow approach to adopting web standards means that we've used some functions they haven't yet implemented. Apparently Edge 18 fixes at least one of these issues - so now I just have to figure out how to actually upgrade. That, or wait them out until they release their newly-announced Chromium-based version...

Alpha update!!
   Hot on the heels of JanusWeb 1.3, we're now making our HTML Doom level viewer public alpha available for everyone to test! We've been looking forwrd to this release for a while now, we've fixed some of the bugs but there are still plenty left to find - both in our code, and in the browsers (I'm looking at you, Mozilla! And, well...you too, Edge, but we'll deal with you later.)

   If you're interested in how this all works, we're working on a full write-up, but suffice to say we're using some cutting-edge browser technology here - ES6 Modules, HTML5 WebComponents, WebGL/WebVR - the works! The code for loading WAD files in JS is available on Github, we'll be publishing the client code along with the technical write-up soon - keep an eye out for that in the next couple weeks.

   25 years?! Has it really been that long since DooM came out? Hmm...well, it's my birthday, so I figured I'd celebrate by releasing HTML DooM! You can pick a game to play from the menu at the left. You'll also find a page which lists all of the cheats (get off my lawn ya dang cheaters, LoL!).

   Don't forget to leave a comment on my guestbook if you like what you see! And if you want to chat, you can find me on EFnet IRC #quake.
