Smokescreen — Pure JavaScript/HTML Flash Player

Kind of amazing — a Flash player written in JavaScript by Chris Smoak. Here’s Simon Willison’s description:

It runs entirely in the browser, reads in SWF binaries, unzips them (in native JS), extracts images and embedded audio and turns them in to base64 encoded data:uris, then stitches the vector graphics back together as animated SVG.
