Flash was originally created and sold by Macromedia.
Adobe acquired Macromedia in a 2005 merger along with a few other programs, some of which being Dreamweaver and Director.
It first came out in 1996 and was popularly called Shockwave flash and now just called Flash.
The executable file is called a swf, or swif. It stands for short web format, it used to stand for shockwave flash.
ActionScript 3.0 is the programming background behind the cool graphics.
How about a history lesson?
In 1993 Jonathan Gay, and others started FutureWave Software and created SmartSketch.
A drawing application, SmartSketch was designed to make creating computer graphics as simple as drawing on paper.
Although SmartSketch was an innovative drawing application, it didn't gain enough of a foothold in its market.
