Adobe will contribute source code to the Mozilla Foundation in a bid to establish a standard scripting language for creating interactive applications for Adobe's Flash Player and Mozilla's Firefox browser.
The partners plan to announce today that Adobe will hand over source code from its ActionScript Virtual Machine, the scripting language engine in its Flash Player.
Tamarin's ultimate goal is to "unify" scripting across Firefox and Flash and thus give web developers an open-source virtual machine for developing and deploying rich, interactive applications across both platforms, according to the organisations.
The effort should yield better compatibility, integration and stability between Flash and Firefox and make it easier for developers to work with the two environments, said Michael Goulde, a Forrester Research analyst.
