Shockwave

Shockwave, developed by Macromedia, is a family of multimedia players. Web users with Windows and Mac platforms can download the Shockwave players from the Macromedia site and use it to display and hear Shockwave files. Shockwave is especially popular for interactive games. However, Macromedia has identified over 2,000 sites that offer Shockwave files, including sites for General Motors, Nissan, Kodak, Microsoft, Intel and Apple. To create Shockwave files, you use Macromedia Director and several related programs.

I still don't know why I should download shockwave. It appears it's used for games --and my computer is not used for games, at all.
