They just announced a Release Candidate, I might investigate. The last time I looked though, my major concern was the size of the scripts needed to do all this emulation. After installing their free version (install worked flawlessly) and looking at their calculator demo, there's about 8MB of .js and other files that need to get downloaded.
Definitely a "single page" app, I can't imagine switching pages and having to download 8MB every time.
The only reason I could see anyone using this is because someone wants to migrate away from Silverlight as a stop-gap measure while the web site is completely refactored using another less cumbersome and more web-friendly technology, such as MVC.
Flash and Silverlight are both dead, and for the same reasons.

Bought the lifetime pro version a few years ago...but, apparently, lifetime just meant until it was released. Or something. I can't figure out if I still have it or if I'd have to buy it again, and since I'm giving up all the programming nonsense in a few years, I'm not going to expend much energy finding out.
Well, that, and I never really found a use for it to being with.
We won't sit down.
We won't shut up.
We won't go quietly away.
We had one - Clive, the "international Sales Manager" - who started complaining that the mains leads we fitted were too short; he had to work under the desk next to the plug. As Technical Manager, I investigated - production were rightly fitting at least 2m leads, so I check his: about 30cm. Strange. Got a new one fitted, and six months later he's moaning again.
Turns out every time he goes abroad, the plug is wrong for the mains supply, so he chops the cable, fits a local plug, and can't understand why the lead is getting so short ...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

that shift your training, then shift it again, then shift it again
Not only training but meetings in general! I've got one of those tomorrow, it was originally scheduled for January 9th.
Then another next Wednesday, which was originally supposed to be sometime mid-2016. Yeah, coming up on a year and a half of delays. Several of those delays were the end-user's fault thinking they didn't need it anymore, usually a few days before the planned meeting. Then after realizing their mistake, rescheduling for a month or two out.
Aye, i know that.
Some weeks i can't breathe because of meetings, then you do their wishes and ask for a test by them.
8 weeks pass and you recieve a mail, "didn't work, please fix and add this and that also, and i invited you for a meeting"....
You know how times passes. Repeat the 2 to 3 line btw
Reminds me of my all-time "favorite" user interaction involving UAT, paraphrased slightly.
Me: So here is the link to the new version for testing. I've checked it to make sure there aren't any errors, but you are the expert and might use the system a bit differently than I do. You will need to check and make sure everything works to your expectations, then send me your approval and we'll get deployment to production schedule.
User: Okay, let me know when that is complete so we can start using the new version.
Me: Ummm, I need you to test and then approve that everything works. Just do what you normally would but do it in this test environment. At least once or twice for each of the functions you perform using the product. Let me know if you find any problems or strange behavior.
User: Okay, just let me know when the testing is done.
Me: Sure, I'll do that.
