Shredder

Shredder

Shredder is an extremely strong chess program developed in Germany by Stefan Meyer-Kahlen.

Shredder is split into two parts. First and foremost the engine, i.e. the real chess program, which represents the real strength of the package. The second element is the Graphical User Interface which is implemented in Java. The display is divided into 5 windows, with the game board occupying the largest window. The other windows show the clocks, game notation, search information, and a histogram.

Shredder won the World Microcomputer Chess Championship in 1996 and 2000, the World Computer Chess Championship in 1999 and 2003, and the World Computer Speed Chess Championship in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2007.
