A little sluggish on my system (iMac G4), and although I am unfamiliar with chess parlance I was able to figure things out with a bit of work. I never took chess beyond a casual level so I'm hoping this li'l widget will teach me a thing or two.

Is there a way to restart a game without forwarding to a new one then stepping back?

version 2.0.1 adds <option> 'R' to restart the puzzle

Seems pretty comprehensive to me!

Well done...not very popular, perhaps, but popular is often poopular anyway. <(??<smiley

This is a really nice addition to my dashboard. However, it needs two things: a reset button and an undo button.

Dukemaster,

v 2.0.1 available now has a reset hot-ket: option+R. Every version since 1.1 has had unlimited undo/redo.

Please see:
