In my opinion this is an extremely good game, especially for a free game that just works by installing an Activex component inside an internet browser.
I feel this online version of the game is just as good as the commercial versions that Quake have released in the past. If not, the online version may even be better as it can be updated easier, the updates can be more frequent but also it's free so more players are online. A shooting game is always better when there are more players

Rather than wasting time trying to figure out this free game, I just deleted my account. The apparent value in time lost not getting it to run after 6 plugin installs/uninstalls/repairs, closing and opening the browser, logins to website, and clicking numerous EULAs. Complete waste. I probably would have been better off digging in my archive of retro cd cases for the game, and install/run the original in an virtual os.

To play the game, you need to register.. But I agree that it lags a little bit, but strange that not always, but sometimes.. I played it only with IE8 and it worked well for me on Windows 7.. But yeah, my laptop is 32 bit
It requires you to install an addon to play the game, maybe the browser or something is blocking the installation and that is the reason it doesn't work, as I remember using IE8 for it, it was quite hard to install it, I needed to push several times to run the addon to install it and etc. as due to the security reasons of IE It takes a while to start playing it, due to all those security reasons and due to a bit of laging, sometimes it seems it doesn't work and it starts to work
But for me it works.. As I understand it's not HTML5, as it requires a special addon for it to run, but it's still fun.
