JudoChess on OSX

Hey all,

I had always taken for granted that JudoChess didn't run on OSX. I thought I had to run a VM or reboot in Windows using bootcamp to play. In fact, you can install Silverlight and run JudoChess from the comfort of OSX on Safari!

First, install Silverlight: https://www.microsoft.com/getsilverligh ... fault.aspx
Then go to judochess.com click Play Now (it won't run yet).
Open Safari>Preferences>Security. Check "Internet plug-ins: [ ] Allow Plug-ins" and click "Plug-in Settings." Click the tab for Silverlight and check the box to enable Silverlight for judochess.com. If the option doesn't show up, make sure you opened the applet. Close out of your settings. The applet should auto-refresh and you can log in.

I was originally just going to do this for Safari but I decided to check the other two major browsers as well. As far as I can tell, Chrome does not have legacy Silverlight support built-in for OSX. Firefox is easiest, you just have to have Silverlight installed and when you open the JudoChess applet it will load a page that says "Activate Silverlight." Click the button and you're good to go.
