Adobe AIR

Definition - What does Adobe AIR mean?

Adobe AIR is a runtime environment developed by Adobe that can be used on different operating systems. This allows Web developers to use their existing Web development skills, code and tools to build and deploy rich Web applications and a content desktop. Adobe AIR has a set of features that support building applications using HTML, JavaScript and Adobe Flash. "AIR" stands for Adobe integrated runtime.

Techopedia explains Adobe AIR

AIR applications can run on desktop Internet browsers and can aid in the development of applications using HTML, JavaScript and the AIR software developer kit. These applications allow users to interact with websites, rich Internet applications and other Web services without using an Internet browser.

Adobe AIR applications are free and are sometimes called widgets. Adobe AIR's main benefit is its compatibility with all operating systems.
