Web 2.0 In November last year I stated that it would only be a matter of time before it happened. Also in November Joel Webber, a Google engineer had the inspiration to port Quake II to HTML5 from Jake2--a Java port of Quake II--using Google Web Toolkit; the same toolkit used for writing Google Mail | Maps | Wave in Java and compiling into JavaScript. With the help of two other Google engineers (Ray Cromwell and Stefan Haustein) in "20% time", it works! Just!

I’VE PLAYED THE GAME. IN MY BROWSER. I COMPILED THE THING FROM SOURCE AND UPLOADED SCREENSHOTS.

What more proof do you want! You can go compile and play it yourself.

The reason the whole code was checked in yesterday was because it’s a public site, duh, and they wanted to hold back and not let anybody find out until they were ready.
