    In Minecraft, I have a graphical glitch where there are small purple and sometimes blue static squares all over my Minecraft screen. How could I fix this? They are roughly the size of the on-screen Minecraft blocks and they jitter left and right ect. and it makes it very hard to play.

    Thank you!

    After hearing about minecraft for a while, I figured I'd head over to Minecraft.net and see what all the fuss was about. After watching a few tutorials, I was hooked on the concept and decided to buy the game.

    After paying for the game, I tried to fire up the app using the in browser version. It worked but it was dreadfully slow. No prob-- I noticed that there was a downloadable version so I figured I would give it a try. When I launch the game, I get an error about a bad graphics card driver. After a bit of googling,I learned that this is usually about the need for openGL support. I've yet to find a driver that fixes the problem but I wonder if i need too.

    Is there something that I can do to get this game to work like it does in the browser? Maybe a passing the exe a couple of parameters? I am quite curious. Why would the game work in the browser but not from the download? What's the difference?
