Gameboy Color emulator running on a browser

Yesterday I posted about Cut The Rope being ported to HTML5+Javascript. Today, I continue the same topic, but with a different view. I’ve came across this fantastic site that puts a whole Gameboy Color Game Center in the browser, using the power of Javascript and HTML5, created by Grant Galitz. Now we are starting to get the dimension this change will have. You can see it in action here. He also has his open-source GameBoy Online Project, which source can be downloaded for free from GitHub.

From my perspective, with everything we have seen until now, Adobe’s Flash is slowly going to be abandoned if Flash fails to bring anything new. There’s lots of examples of applications and effects that have been achieved using Flash in the past, but today we can build these using just web technologies. This ranges from the simple image galleries to word processors.

There is a also a blog about games being developed with HTML5 here: http://www.html5gamedevs.com/

What do you think about this HTML5 revolution?
