Adobe Flash plug-ins add animation and interactivity to your website. Flash plug-ins are written in ActionScript which is very similar to JavaScript. In fact, you might confuse a flash plug-in for JavaScript and vice versa. To determine how the webpage was made, right click on the part of the webpage in question and if you see an "about the Flash Player" menu option, you know Flash was used. Otherwise, click "view source" to look at the source code. If it's not a Flash plug-in, it is likely to be JavaScript or a Java applet.
