Minecraft has become a cultural sensation over the years, and now reaches over 90 million gamers every month. Mojang has released a number of updates which have added tremendous depth to the experience. However, let's say that you're one for nostalgia, and don't like any of the new content. Luckily, there's a solution to that problem and it can be accessed through a browser.
Today, the team released Minecraft Classic for browsers. You just have to go to classic.minecraft.net to access the game. The developer issued the following hilarious statement about the version.

Not fully supported in Edge. Wow, Microsoft...
