Welcome to the Rebel Home Page

With this page we (in a nutshell) like to introduce our chess program Rebel to you and also point to the most important pages on the Rebel Home Page to get a better understanding what Rebel is all about.

Schröder BV is a Dutch chess software developing company completely devoted to chess since 1985. For an impression of our company you can visit our who is who page.

In that remarkable year (1985) our first commercial chess program named REBEL 5.0 was released by Mephisto Hegener & Glaser, Munich, Germany in a stand-alone (dedicated) chess computer. Since 1994 we produce top chess software for PC distributed by a worldwide dealer network in more than 30 countries.

What is Rebel?

  • Rebel is one of the strongest and most complete chess programs in the world.
  • Rebel is famous for its playing strength but especially for its deep positional understanding. Therefore the quality of the returned analysis is simply high and mostly very reliable what makes Rebel not only play good against humans but also against other computer opponents.
