I enjoyed FreeCiv on Windows in the past, and was looking forwards to playing in browser via the Chrome web store, as advertised. However, the link just takes you to the Freeciv website, there is no browser version. Why is this still listed?

3rd Mar 2018 - The web version of Freeciv,, has been shut down. The sole volunteer who was running the service is no longer willing to continue doing so. We haven't identified anyone else on the (very small) Freeciv team who has the skills and time to run this service hosted on, so you should expect it to be down for the foreseeable future.
