Google Swiffy: Converts Flash SWF Files to HTML5

Google announced a new tool that can be used to convert a Flash SWF content into HTML 5 content that is compatible with iPhone. Swiffy Tool uses JSON technology, SVG, HTML5, CSS3, and ActionScript 2.0 to create Flash SWF files appear as JavaScript to the browser's WebKit, which is then able to display that content. SWF file is translated almost as small as the original file.

Google warns that not all Flash files can be converted using this tool, but most can. This tool can be helpful for iPhone owners because iPhone's Safari browser can not display the Flash-based content.
