Flash: Industry-leading rich web-content rendering platformFlash started out as a proprietary animation solution by Macromedia, inc. as a software studio which enabled animators and developers alike to collaborate on rich, interactive media objects which could in turn be embedded in a web page and displayed within a standard web browser.

The Flash technology has almost always since its inception enjoyed a strong niche following on the web, with a loyal developer, contributor and user base, however it was Adobe's 2005 acquisition of Macromedia [1] which infused the Flash technology with new life, as it re-emerged as an entire rich media platform of its own, still designed for delivery over the web and standard browsers, but with many more capabilities and a larger scope. Entire applications could now be created using the Flash and Adobe ColdFusion combination, as could multimedia presentations using Flash's VP6 (.flv) video codec, or MP4 which was supported shortly after.
