Submission + - Open-Source Javascript Flash Player (HTML5/SVG) (paulirish.com) 1

gbutler69 writes: Wow! Someone has gone and done it. Created a Flash Player written in Javascript targetting SVG/HTML5 capable browsers. It's not a complete implementation yet, but, it shows some real promise. Of course, there is the ever-famous vector "Hello World!" called Tiger. This really has promise.

    As far as I can see, all of Flash v1 is supported, and about half of v2, and nothing later, so there's quite a way to go yet.
