What does MMBBG stand for in gaming?

Massively multiplayer browser-based game

Gamers use MMBBG as shorthand for "massively multiplayer browser-based game." These types of massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) are played directly in a user's web browser, rather than via a separate game launcher and window.

While some MMOGs remain available to play in-browser, most have migrated to their own dedicated apps. For example, RuneScape, one of the most popular MMBBGs, now recommends that players play via the game's client, rather than in-browser.
