Ruffle is a free Adobe Flash Player emulator written in the Rust programming language. With this tool, you will be able to play Flash content without any problems as if Flash is still installed on your PC. The emulator works in all modern operating systems as a desktop application, as well as in all popular browsers (Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Edge, Brave, Opera, Vivaldi) through the use of WebAssembly.
Ruffle detects all existing Flash content on a website and automatically displays it in Ruffle Player, ensuring smooth refreshing of websites that still rely on Flash content. At the moment, not all Flash content can be played using an emulator, but most can. Early Flash animations and games will work great. The developers of the project promise in the future to gradually expand compatibility with Flash.
