Visualizing Thoughts Of A Chess Program

22nd November 2006 morning, I got the web link of a chess program that shows its thaughts while deciding on moves. It gives a simulation with graphics of the possible moves the computer is currently considering. Looks beautiful though the interface/ specially the knight, bishop, queen are not easily recognizable. Also it didn't let me choose what I want to promote my pawn to - Queen, Rook, Bishop or Night and defaulted the promotion to Queen while for my position, promoting it to a Rook was sufficient. Still I would say this is a wonderful project!

Chess Machine Thinking

I was easily able to defeat it playing a game with white.
