Google releases Swiffy which converts Flash to HTML5

If you access Google Labs you can now find the first version of Swiffy. For those of you who don’t know what Swiffy is – it’s a new tool from Google which can transform swf files into HTML5. It’s very easy to use, all you have to do is to upload your swf files and this tool will do the rest, after which you can take the HTML code that it generates and insert it into your pages. Below you can see an example :

For those of you that want to know more technical details about how Swiffy works, all we know is that it works by converting the SWF file into a JSON file which your browser then loads with JavaScript and
renders using HTML, SVG, and CSS. So far only the browsers Safari and Chrome can work with Swiffy. The news of the release of Swiffy will be appreciated by all the iOS users which lack the possibility to view flash files but with the growing power of HTML5, it seems that perhaps Steve Jobs was right when he called Flash a part of the past and HTML5 the future.[via Appletell]
