One of Valve’s most popular first-person shooters is now available to play right in your browser, no installation required.

One of its many successors, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, is regularly the top game on Steam in terms of current player count.

As Pocket-lint highlights, you can now play Counter-Strike 1.6 right from your browser simply by visiting this site. Servers are reportedly available in Asia, Canada, Europe, Brazil, India and the US that you can hop right into free of charge. If you’re looking for a private server to rent, those are available as well, albeit for a fee.

Of course, if you’re looking for something a bit more modern, the aforementioned Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is free to play on Steam. You'll need to download and install it to play although given its age, it doesn't require a very beefy system to run.

No word on the legality of the browser-based version or if Valve will shut it all down soon. As always, play at your own risk.

Counter Strike 1.6 is easily better than Global Offensive.
Nah, CSGO has been regularly updated, well balanced and has more of a community now than it did 20 years ago. Great game easily the best tactical MP shooter on the market. It's a game I always keep returning to play now and again because it's always being updated. I even closed beta tested back in 2012 before they released the game to the public. Valve take their time to listen to the community and fix bugs etc.

I always liked 1.5 more than 1.6
1.5 was there for such a short period if I remember correctly, but it was great.
For me personally, 1.4 was the best where I did the most outrageous headshots the most frequently... all my friends hated me on the LAN-parties. ???
