I had played at many chess playing sites. From the early days of FICS, Yahoo, Pogo and ICC to the current sites like chess.com, chesscube.com.
My latest site is chess24.com. You can follow my link to the site:
chess24.com your playground
In the early days, chess playing sites are mostly PC based i.e. you need a PC to and play and a lot of them also client-based i.e. you need to install a program before you can play. Later on, they developed into browser-based where you only need a browser and no installation required. Now a day, a lot of sites develop ‘Apps’ i.e. program that can run using smartphone mostly iOS or Android. This will allow a player to play anytime and anywhere as long as the have Internet access.
