Es el code name que le puso el grupo de desarrollo de Adobe para el open source version de la ultima maquina virtual flash player 2 (AVM2).

"The new virtual machine has been delivered now in Flash Player 9, enabling ActionScript 3.0 to run an order of magnitude faster and implement the most recent work on the ECMA standard for the language (JavaScript follows this same standard). This modern implementation has also now been released as open source with the Mozilla Foundation as the Tamarin project, enabling the Flash Player team to work with Mozilla engineers and others in the open source community to continue optimizing the virtual machine and keeping up with the most recent standards work. This core scripting engine will be incorporated over time in Firefox, bringing consistency across scripting in HTML and Flash."

Más vale competir, como sea, donde sea, que no competir, se dijeron estos tipos. Asi les va.

La guita no es todo y este es un claro ejemplo nomás de la vieja leyenda David & Goliat.
