For testing that, just use this:
https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/

Or this:
https://www.isitdownrightnow.com

Or this:
https://isitdownorjust.me/
I used all three given chess sites on https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ . All are up but not accessible for me .

The sites you name are accessible here, so it must be something local. Have you tried just emptying webbrowser cache, shutting down computer and restarting it? Is it just these chess sites that you can't access?

I tried both Firefox on Linux and Chrome on Windows. Still can not connect.

Single player:

One lite game that I play occasionally is called Flow/Stream . There are many other games too, Sokoban comes to my mind now.

It is incredibly difficult to produce a tactical test suite with 1000 positions which is thoroughly debugged.
Even 100 positions is rather difficult.
For instance, what if the line is confirmed by several top engines ?
