JavaScript => Flash

So far the most portable web browser based rich UI technology I have seen is Adobe Flash. The coverage, consistency, and reliability they have provided, I have seen in other competing technologies.

This is a good example of that...

(Well, I am a fan of this game :-D ).

Can this be extended to handle wider spectrum of problems. I was thinking about this because of some UI design discussions I am having with my colleges.

Today, I found an open source company who has a technology which make this a possibility. Basically they take a JavaScript description of a complex fancy GUI and compile that to a flash executable. Interesting....
