You’ve been asking for it since day one of the Closed Beta. John Carmack has been listening. In an interview with joystiq he let the world know that support for the other two operating systems was “pretty high on [his] priority list”. He went on to say that he hopes that they’ll be able to achieve “(…) a handful of milliseconds better than you can actually get on Windows.”
Marty Stratton, producer of Quake Live, was also present during the interview. Elaborating on browser support outside Internet Explorer and Firefox, he told joystiq that, “I suspect we will get Chrome supported as well.” Marty, a Mac user, currently uses Boot Camp in order to play Quake Live. There was no word on Apple Safari, although its support is probably implied.
While many out-in-the-cold Mac and Linux users can now sigh in relief, when the support will actually be enabled is still unknown. During the interview, Carmack mentioned that a 3rd party is working on it “right now”. Considering that the Open Beta has only just begun, it’s very possible that it might be ready for Quake Live’s official release.
Joystiq will be uploading the entire interview later today. You can read the original article here.
