Mozilla, the makers of Firefox, have launched a fiendish initiative to make sure you never leave your browser, ever.

Our friends at Gamespy just ruined everyone’s productivity by highlighting BrowserQuest, a disarmingly simple little MMO.

You use the mouse for everything – attacking, collecting and equipping gear – and the game saves your character automatically, allowing you to drop in and out at any time.

You can chat and adventure with other players or just wander off alone; if you die, you can revive with all your gear intact.

It’s a black hole from which only unplugging my computer at the wall saved me: You have been warned.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
