- (2020-08-09) Andrew: So good that I can't believe Chess.com hasn't created this themselves. Thanks for making this and keeping it updated! I can never commit myself to learning chess notation. I'm hoping that forcing myself to play via keyboard will help me learn the notation. Next step, blind chess! I'm impressed you already have that as a feature.
