Mozilla launches Popcorn Maker, a Web-based remix tool

This is an early version of the Popcorn Maker but it is promising because it uses open standards like CSS and HTML 5, is free to use and is browser-based. This sets it apart from proprietary tools such as Flash.

This is an example of what the young hosts of WNYC’s Radio Rookies made with Popcorn Maker:
