Adobe Flash Platform client runtimes


Deliver great experiences


At the center of the Flash Platform are the client runtimes: Adobe Flash Player for the browser and Adobe AIR for outside the browser. The runtimes render applications created on the Flash Platform (in the form of SWF files).


Inside the browser

Adobe Flash Player is a lightweight browser plug-in and rich Internet application runtime that delivers consistent and engaging user experiences, stunning audio/video playback, and pervasive reach.
