Macromedia Central was a runtime environment based on Flash Player that had been marketed by Macromedia for developing applications that can be distributed over the internet to run on various operating systems.
As an extension of Flash Player, Central shares some similarities with the Java Runtime Environment, but with a much smaller memory footprint through the use of vector animation. The last version of Central, 1.5, was released in September 2004.
A hidden Homestar Runner cartoon, titled "Where the Crap Are We?" could be found by opening the "About Macromedia Central" dialog box, holding down Ctrl (or command on Macintoshes) and double clicking on the logo. This brings up a password entry box. Enter "sbemail" as the password, and the cartoon will play in the dialog box.
