    Does anyone here play minecraft on there mac?
    I'm just about to buy it but for some reason the 'in browser' version only works on safari, and not google chrome?

    I've read lots of horror stories (obviously it only being in a beta mode it's prone to bugs)

    Every Mac has Safari, so you can just use that :p

    And it's not a very big download, 20-30 megs?

    I play it using the stand alone downloadable java version and it runs great. No problems at all with it. I also do play it once in a while in chrome and it runs fine.

    I generally play the java standalone version. Beta here. Even runs nicely on my 13" 2010 MBA.

    I absolutely love this game

    The only reason I can think of to not buy it is because it will consume your ENTIRE life.

    I have it and it was great at first. It does get a tiny bit boring though. I was really into it too - drew out maps of my world and built bases in each major region, all connected by an elaborate network of trains. My goal was to build a train track heading north that stretched as far as I could possibly make it.

    But, eh, just got bored of it. I keep heading back once a month to check out the updates.

    The best way to avoid getting bored is finding a good server and playing online. If you get a good server with good people the fun is endless. You can do anything from just build/mine to PVP. I'm just a MineCraft fanboy though. :D
