Microsoft Silverlight: Light Up the Web

SilverlightMicrosoft has just released Beta 1.0 of Silverlight, a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web. You could say that Silverlight is Microsoft’s attempt to produce a flash killer. For now, the plugin is only compatible with Windows and OSX, but a Linux version should come out eventually.

You can download Silverlight (Beta) right here, and when it’s installed, see it in action at the bottom of this page.

  1. Interesting however how safe can it be? Is it just another ploy to take the market share from Firefox?

    I just check my stat and over 1.2 million log with Ff compare to 300,00.

    • Hey there,

      From Flash you mean right? Firefox isn't really related to Silverlight, more to Internet explorer!

  3. Hello, I found this blog article while looking for help with fixing Microsoft Silverlight. I have recently changed internet browser from Chrome to IE. Just recently I seem to have a problem with loading sites that use Microsoft Silverlight. Everytime I browse page that requires Microsoft Silverlight, the site does not load and I get a “npctrl.dll” error. I can’t seem to find out how to fix the problem. Any help getting Microsoft Silverlight to work is greatly appreciated! Thanks
