Speaking of Tron and HTML5, wrote this a couple of days ago: http://shazow.net/linerage (most fun with 2+ players).

Cool! I made something like that a bunch of years back: http://davidsj.com/rtron/

You can also watch 7 AI play each other: http://davidsj.com/rtron/7ai/

Very cool! Incredibly slow on my MBP + Chrome though. :(

I wrote my first version of it in 2006 in Pygame: https://gist.github.com/728623

HTML 5 is amazing.

JavaScript's speed improvements over the past few years is amazing.

That said, bring on the GPU acceleration!

Or maybe add multiprocessing? In Chrome it uses less than 1/6 of the available CPU's on this machine.

I am using all CPU's on Firfox. I suspect it's more of a codec issue.

That was worth it just for the preview - I don't remember seeing it when I was a kid. Pretty intense.

Works in Chromium 7.0.517.44 (64615) on Ubuntu 10.04, but not in Firefox 3.6.12 on Ubuntu 10.04.

Odd, it works fine on my Firefox 3.6.2 on Vista.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100316 Firefox/3.6.2 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

It's also using all four cores on an 2.4GHz Intel Q6600 and only hitting 25-30% CPU which is not bad IMO.

How odd...Firefox 3.6.12 on Ubuntu 10.04 here, and it works fine.

Works fine on Firefox 4.0b7 on Win7 though.

Did not work on my Mac in Safari. The Old Spice one worked, though.

It did not show video on iPod Touch iOS 4.1 Anybody tried iOS 4.2?

Nonfunctional in Chrome 9.0.597.7 on Vista 64-bit.

This really should be using web worker threads.
