FWIW, it seems to start up and one can play here on some recent versions of Firefox as well as Palemoon, though this is on some *NIX box.

During testing I noticed some not-so-nice timing issues on non-Chrome-based browsers so even if it were to work somewhat, the play might be awkward.  I didn't reflect this in the description appropriately, clearly erroneous.  Will update the info.

Thanks for trying and the feedback!

On a separate note, have added a screenshot.
