Advanced Chess is a chess app by Mathias Eck. It is currently using the Stockfish or Glaurung chess engines, and has a compressed opening book. This is in no way related to the other javascript "Pre Chess" app. It's a real binary chess engine with a javascript user interface. Source code can be found on the webos-internals git site.

If you want to download the 10 meg opening book, you can do so from the prefs page.
