Ruffle Alternatives

    Ruffle is described as 'Flash Player emulator written in Rust. Ruffle runs natively on all modern operating systems as a standalone application, and on all modern browsers through the use of WebAssembly'. There are six alternatives to Ruffle for a variety of platforms, including Linux, Windows, Firefox, Mac and Online / Web-based. The best alternative is Lightspark, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Ruffle are BlueMaxima's Flashpoint (Free, Open Source), Gnash (Free, Open Source), Swfdec (Free, Open Source) and CheerpX for Flash (Free Personal).
