What better way to show off your HTML5 prowess than to conjure up an MMOG using the new platform? Mozilla has done just that with the launch of BrowserQuest, an old-school adventure game developed by Little Workshop. Currently the entire internet seemingly wants to check out the new demo, as it's extremely difficult to log on and stay connected.

"BrowserQuest is a tribute to classic video-games with a multiplayer twist," Mozilla reports. "You play as a young warrior driven by the thrill of adventure. No princess to save here, just a dangerous world filled with treasures to discover. And it’s all done in glorious HTML5 and JavaScript."

The MMOG is merely a demo to show how these WebSockets can be used to create a real-time multiplayer game in a single webpage.
