Browser Clients

All of the below clients are intended to be run in a capable browser or a flash player (respectively). In the case of the flash player you do not have to use a browser at all, and it would be smarter not to. Simply download a stand-alone projector and use it to open the swf. Put the projector in the same folder as the swf so it will definitely have the proper current working directory.
