Jin is an open source, cross platform, graphical client for
chess servers, written in Java.
It currently supports the Internet Chess Club (chessclub.com)
and the Free Internet Chess Server (freechess.org), but is designed to
to support any chess server. The software allows chatting, playing
chess and supports most of the features of both servers.
Jin can be run as a regular standalone application, or as an
applet in a web browser.
