GameBoy Online

Tentatively named GameBoy Online, this emulator is the first GameBoy Color emulator written in JavaScript, as well as the first GameBoy emulator in JavaScript to include sound support. It started with some video code ported from MeBoy as well as previously using code from jsGB (Pedro Ladaria one). Over time, this emulator has become the first JavaScript GameBoy emulator to provide many times over greater accuracy than the previous emulators written in JavaScript. This is also the only emulators as of writing that has the user load in his or her own ROM files into it instead of pre-loading a very limited set of ROMs for the user to play from.
