What is Adobe AIR?
AIR stands for Adobe Integrated Runtime. It is a system for running applications that you would usually use online on your desktop, and although they run on your desktop, they can still access the Internet. A popular example of an AIR application is e Bay Desktop. E Bay desktop allows users to set up listings off line, and then upload them later when they are online. It also allows people to browse eBay and bid on items through the desktop, and also gives more functionality that using eBay through a browser.
