• Machine: Browser War
  • Concept+Development: Douglas Edric Stanley
  • Original website: www.w4r.net (update: this has, ironically, been cybersquatted)

Browser War is an online battle between two randomly selected HTML files. Participants in the war design the code and then upload it to the server. The server then conducts skirmishes, called “Discovery” : it selects possible files and allows each of them to run against one another.

The rules are simple: only one HTML file is allowed, and no server-side embedded code is allowed. All PHP scripts, for example, are disactivated (no hitting below the belt!). Javascript, on the other hand, is allowed, and makes for a fun battle.
