Next-Gen has some news from QuakeCon that is equal parts awesome, confusing and quite possibly the greatest idea id has ever had. To quote N-G:
Radical idea, right? Even John Carmack had to admit that the plan "may work, it may not", but if anyone can make ad-supported, in-browser gaming viable, it's id with a proven, beloved property like Quake 3: Arena.
Details such as browser compatibility, hardware requirements and release dates all seem to be ethereal for the moment, but as soon as John returns from launching a gila monster into orbit around Saturn he has promised to get back to us.
