- Firebird is a open source, cross-platform database server. Firebird was born when the InterBase source code was released in July 2000 by the then Inprise Corp (now known as Borland Software Corporation) and it is now maintained as an open source project. For a brief time, "Mozilla Firebird" was the name given to what is now the "Mozilla Firefox" browser.
- Mozilla Firefox is a cross-platform Web browser published by the Mozilla Foundation, and based on the Mozilla project. See also: Mozilla.
- Flash is Adobe's (originally Macromedia's) vector-based, web multimedia product. Depending on context, 'Flash' can refer to both the authoring tool and the completed 'interactive movies' authored with the product. These movies are usually played within a web browser equipped with the free Flash plugin. The ubiquity of this plugin has made Flash the defacto standard for web multimedia, with the ability to integrate video, program logic, graphics and sound into a self contained package at a relatively low bandwidth overhead.
