Free implementation of Flash (SWF) in JavaScript

Shumway is an HTML5 technology experiment that explores building a faithful and efficient renderer for the SWF file format without native code assistance.

It is available as an extension for Mozilla-based browsers like GNU IceCat. Shumway which will be included in Mozilla Firefox in the future, is still in development and has a long way to go.
