      Ruffle vs Newgrounds Player opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Douze I couldn't confirm it for sure, but it seems the dev team behind Ruffle is pretty much the same that developped the Newgrounds Player. As of now, most of the effort is put on Ruffle as it offers in-browser integration and doesn't depend on critical proprietary files. So Ruffle is essentially the future of Newgrounds Player. Feel free to correct me if i'm wrong !
