Slashgear: You can now play the original Diablo game on web browsers

Slashgear: You can now play the original Diablo game on web browsers. “The gaming industry is pretty terrible at preserving its rich history. The hard and thankless work of making sure classic games are still available to future generations is done by third-parties, some of whom even risk lawsuits from companies that are not at all interested in doing that but continue to close off these games to protect their IPs decades after their day in the market. Fortunately, through odd twists in history, the code for the original Diablo has more or less become available to the public, leading to one of the oddest ports of the game: Diablo on the Web.” I tried this briefly on my Chromebook. It looked a little weird (the colors were off) but played fine.
