No, Director can't export to swf. You can run non published Director
files, .DIR, or shockwave published ones, .DCR, using either a
standalone application, or using a browser plugin. To add to the
confusion, Director can import swfs, so you can have the situation
where you're online, playing a Flash game in a browser, even if no
part of Flash is installed on that machine.
Incidentally, Flash, Director, and Unity files all play quite well
