Adobe Flash (previously known as Macromedia Flash) is a program distributed by Adobe Systems.

The Flash Platform integrated set of technologies provides everything you need to create and deliver applications, content, and video to the widest possible audience. Now, the Open Screen Project is enabling you to deliver rich, seamless experiences created with Flash across multiple devices. It is commonly used to create and develop animation, advertisements, and various web paged Flash components to integrate video onto web pages, and to develop rich Internet applications.
