Ruffle is an Adobe Flash Player emulator. Ruffle seamlessly plays Flash content on sites you visit. Enjoy your favorite Flash games from yesteryear!

Browsers removed support for the Flash Player in 2020. The rich legacy of Flash content is no longer easily accessible. By installing Ruffle, you can continue to experience this content as intended, directly in your browser.

Ruffle does not require the official Adobe Flash Player. Instead, Ruffle uses modern web technologies including HTML5, WebAssembly, and WebGL. When you visit a web site, Ruffle replaces embedded Flash movies with the Ruffle player, displaying the Flash content directly in-page.

** Ruffle is alpha quality software! **
Currently ActionScript 1.0/2.0 content is supported. This allows for playing content from 2008 and earlier. ActionScript 3.0 content is not yet supported. We're working on it!

Risk impact

Ruffle requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Ruffle if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Ruffle has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
