Microsoft Silverlight

About Microsoft Silverlight.

Microsoft Silverlight is a browser plugin that allows web applications to be developed with features that characterize a rich internet application: animation, vector graphics and audio-video playback. Silverlight competes with products such as Adobe Flash, Adobe Flex, Adobe Shockwave, Java FX, and Apple QuickTime. Version 2.0 brought improved interactivity and allows developers to use .NET languages and development tools when authoring Silverlight applications.

Silverlight was developed under the codename Windows Presentation Foundation/Everywhere (WPF/E). It is compatible with multiple web browser products used on Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. A third-party free software implementation named Moonlight is under development to bring compatible functionality to GNU/Linux. Mobile devices, starting with Windows Mobile 6 and Symbian (Series 60) phones, will also be supported.
