Quake Live is moving out of web browsers to a standalone client

Online FPS Quake Live will transition to a standalone game client by the end of the year.

The announcement was made on the Quake Live forums today, and the team attribute the move to inconsistent running conditions caused by browsers dropping support for plugins. Players will need to download a new launcher, promising a quick and painless transition. All game data and player stats will carry over.

Unfortunately though, the new client will be unable to natively support Mac and Linux.
