Nothing quite beats free stuff, unless its free stuff that his an undeniably nostalgic taste to it, and which thus has the power to transport recipients back to a simpler, more magical time before Jar Jar and before everyone suspected that Mr Lucas might be in it for more than just the pleasure of creating art. And now, we have some exciting news on that front, thanks to some very clever people who have announced that you can now play Star Wars Tie Fighter - the iconic DOS game from 1994 - using only the power of Chrome.
Haven't tried it, but looks great.

so.... Chrome loads DOXBos which loads Tie Fighter, that sounds like an extra step to me, might as well just get DOSBox

I haven't been able to get DOSBox to run TIE Fighter very well though...

If this saves the typical setup issues, that would be a plus.

Very cool and nostalgic.

I'm definitely going to have to check this out.

Thanks, Prime.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
