Buried way, way down at the bottom of an ID Software press release, there's some exciting news for Linux and Mac users who have been waiting to join the fray at Quakelive.com.
This Tuesday's update will bring with it a number of fixes and improvements. Leaderboards will be returning, but the most noteworthy change is that the browser-based FPS will finally support all three major platforms.
You'll need Firefox installed on your Mac or Linux box to get in on the action. Apart from IE, no other browsers are supported yet. If you don't use Firefox and you've been anxiously waiting to try Quake Live, that's a small price to pay.
As Download Squad regular Kenn will tell you, "Free is good." Head on over to Quakelive.com on August 18 and sign up.
