Submission + - Open source project to translate SWF to html5 ( 1

An anonymous reader writes: Mozilla currently has an experimental project on github called shumway to try to interpret SWF (aka Flash files) using browser-standard technologies like html5 and javascript. All I can say is please and thank you!

Shumway is an HTML5 technology experiment that explores building a faithful and efficient renderer for the SWF file format without native code assistance. Shumway is community-driven and supported by Mozilla. Our goal is to create a general-purpose, web standards-based platform for parsing and rendering SWFs. Integration with Firefox is a possibility if the experiment proves successful.

  • This would be a huge. We need more and more companies to challenge the capabilities of flash with html5 and JavaScript.
