Ficgs: Number 1 freestyle chess site??

Title is deliberately provocative :)

Was looking to see how many other freestyle chess sites there are and came across this wiki article:

The trend might be changing as Advanced Chess is offered on the correspondence chess server at FICGS as the default mode of play, with special, unrated, "no engines" tournaments being the exception, rather than the rule.

FICGS has a better user interface for freestyle compared to other site. Its just need to sponsor more freestyle events to gain more players. Yes definitely its number 1.

Freestyle chess interfaces

Oh... didn't see this article before.

Well, I guess that a good freestyle interface should allow the use of an engine just like Playchess does. Playchess interface is not exactly a website though. But anyway there is so much that could be done yet to improve it :/
