On playchess.com, "Centaur", or centaur mode, means that you can officially use
one or more engines for analysis during the game. IOW it's advanced chess, like
it has been played in León several times in a similar way (otb). The human
player is in full control of the game. There is a special centaur rating also,
in addition to the computer and human ratings.

Btw. there was a russian chess program named Centaur once, but that's something
different.
