Gnash is an open source GNU Flash player. On Sunday, Gnash developers released version 0.8.8.
Gnash is compatible with the Adobe Flash player. It runs on GNU/Linux, embedded GNU + Linux systems, and BSD, including x86, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC and 64-bit systems. It includes a standalone player as well as a browser plugin for Firefox, Chrome, Konqueror and all Gecko-based browsers.
