    Sure, I think we've all found that bug or at least tried it. Anyways it won't work because there are checkpoints throughout the level. You can tell when you hit one because the cursor will change to a hand for a split second. IIRC there are about 4 in the first level.

    Yep,

    and, just as a side note. You can save the game to your desktop by saving the html page.

    Then you don't need to go online to play it.
