If you are not a big follower of the developers at Adobe, you probably should be because they are developing tomorrow’s internet today. Take the Adobe Air development. This is a cross-platform environmental runtime designed exclusively to interact with the already popular internet technologies of Flash, Flex, HTML, as well as Ajax. Originally code named Apollo, the Adobe Air is now fully released and is being used by many developers already to create rich user interaction making it basically the epitome of the Web 2.0 concept.

The Air runtime is designed to be highly versatile and allows a developer to integrate Actionscript, Flash, HTML and JavaScript seamlessly. Basically through the use of Adobe Air, you can create an environment that is less like browsing on the internet and more like having the website packaged into a desktop program right on your computer. According to Adobe, it is even considered to be a browser-less runtime application that allows you to access rich internet content right on your desktop. On top of this, with the program being used, there is no need for the installation of an executable file which is perfect for those wanting to develop a streaming online video game without the hassles of bandwidth use or requiring users to download a file to play the games.

While most servers store information on the server itself, using the Adobe Air runtime, the user’s data can be easily stored on their own computer speeding up their connectivity to a website while at the same exact time reducing the bandwidth the server uses. Think of it along the lines of the eBay desktop program which will allow a seller to create their listing offline and upload it at a later date and time. Currently this technology is Adobe Air and so are other popular sites like NASDAQ, Yahoo! as well as the New York Times. There is so much development being done to create these rich applications using Adobe Air that there are already more then 200 applications available.

Using the latest release of Adobe Studios, CS4, you will be able to develop these rich Web 2.0 websites because the support for the development is built right in. However you can also do it the old fashioned way simply using your notepad but this requires a little more time and effort in the development process.
