Alan Hensel has set up a page
where you can play his very own creation, PAC-80, on the web.
Thanks also to Alan for taking the time to report problems with the Z-80 emulation
that PAC-80 brought to the surface (now fixed).
has moved his
page to a new location.
Carston Altena has created
a page (http://www.carstenaltena.nl/TRS 80/)

improves on my plain look!
Added Invasion Force game to the emulator page.
Release of version 1.4. Fixed a error in handling single-quote comments
when loading ASCII BASIC programs.

on the canvas. The former is
much faster on current releases of
Firefox and Safari.
Added a Retro-Zap page for all to play
Shawn Delaney's brand new old game Retro-Zap
Release of version 1.3 which added support for the cassette (.cas) format
and the loading of binary BASIC programs. Added a sample machine-level debugger.
Numerous forgotten small bug fixes including adding some error messages

written by the prolific Antonio Villena.
Release 1.2 of the emulator.
Added a page comparing browser performance
handle the Z-80 emulation but the canvas drawing at 30 fps can still make
machines struggle. As of 2012, handheld systems are getting closer to real-time.
A few people have embedded the emulator in their own pages. Here are
the ones I know about.
Arthur Gleckler's page for
a TRS-80 game he wrote back in the machine's salad days. The online emulator
doesn't support sound so you can't hear the cool speech effects.
posted a nice
on the TRS-80 along with an expanded library of programs to run. (Jan 2015: links updated)
