Lantern is a Java Interface to ICC
Install Java if not installed. It can be off in web browsers. Only versions 5.82 and later work on version 9. Legacy Mac Java works as well.
This interface can be used for a free trial on chessclub.com. See validating a PayPal trial if you do not allready have an account. Lantern Software is free.
Prior to starting this interface, I made the Pulsar Chess Program which plays chess and variants such as Atomic, Crazyhouse, Losers, Three Checks, Chess960, and Giveaway. There is an iOS version as well.
We are an open source program and on github.com at lanternicc
