Palview is still one of the best (Windows) programs to create webpages with JavaScript for replaying chess games and it is freeware. It’s a pity that the development of Palview seems to have stopped with the release of Palview version 4 in December 2003. This version added new page types like the Problem and Tactics pages. These are quiz pages where a problem or a tactical exercise is shown to the visitor who can then try and guess the solution by making the right move on the board. Another new type in this release was the Magazine page type.

Palview takes a chess game stored in PGN format and converts it into an Html/JavaScript page. Despite the fact that the development seems to have stopped in 2003 Palview is still widely used on the Internet.
