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.
