short for: Macromedia Flash

A vector graphic animation technology that's bandwidth friendly and browser-independent. In other words, it is a programming technique that enables movies and animation to move seamlessly across a Web browser. As long as different browsers are equipped with the necessary plugins, Flash animations will look the same. If it's on the Web and it's moving, it is probably a design using Flash. (Flash was known as FutureSplash until 1997.)
