Default Swiffy from Google Labs Converts Simple Flash to HTML5

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://9to5mac.com/2011/06/28/google-testing-html5-based-flash-killing-converter/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+9To5Mac-MacAllDay+(9+to+5+Mac+-+Apple+Intelligence)' target='_blank'>http://9to5mac.com/2011/06/28/googl...e+Intelligence)</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Well, this is interesting&hellip; Google is advertising on its Google Labs page an experimental tool which aims to liberate web developers from the confines of Adobe&rsquo;s Flash platform. They are calling it Swiffy (sweet) and its sole purpose is to convert Flash SWF files to HTML5. But make no mistake about it &ndash; this is about Apple&rsquo;s iOS gadgets. Google itself says Swiffy lets you &ldquo;reuse Flash content on devices without a Flash player (such as iPhones and iPads)&rdquo;. Interesting Apple&rsquo;s frenemy all of a sudden took it upon themselves to help port Flash content to Apple&rsquo;s devices."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1309320315.usr17748.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>Interesting the twists and turns that coopetition uncovers! Swiffy converts simple Flash animations to HTML5 minus custom fonts. Not expected to ever replace complex Flash in games or interactive applications, this appears to be a step forward for HTML5. Good on ya, Google Labs!</p>
