+It's mostly been developed/tested on Google Chrome, and an up-to-date
 version of Chrome is probably required to run it. Firefox and possibly
 Safari might work also, though there will probably be rot on those
 platforms.
 
 The goals of the project are to better understand the above APIs, to

-imagining, and make something kind of cool. Minecraft is a great

+original, and to make something kind of cool. Minecraft is a great
 sandbox, but a Minecraft-like codebase is a sandbox sandbox. So each
 grain of sand is now a sandbox; you get me?
 
-It is a nongoal to duplicate Minecraft; I'm happy to implement similar
-features for the sake of the technical challenge, or implement fresh
-ideas. Admittedly, at present, the game looks mostly like little more

+As it stands, the game is little more than a poor clone of Minecraft;

-It is an anti-goal to look at Minecraft's source code; rather I base

 It isn't necessarily a goal to create something fun to play. This is

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
