I’m not a silverlight developer, so I don’t know much about them. However, I do know that I have never experienced a decade of software development without hearing someone say, “Oh, Silverlight, what a great tool!” (or a few variations of that) and I’m pretty sure that I’ve said that to at least one person who has never used silverlight or its tools.
In the end, even after all of this time, I’m still not exactly sure what Silverlight is. I do know that they have a great tool that allows us to easily build video and document websites, but I dont know what it is.
There are a couple of things that have probably been around for a while, but have never made it to the big leagues, and that is the fact that Silverlight has gone public. In fact, Microsoft went public in 2005, and Adobe was the first major player to have Silverlight.
Silverlight has been around for a while. It isn’t like HTML where you had to wait a few years to see a major release. In fact, in the old days, Silverlight was used as a way to run a web browser inside of an app that you could run on your desktop. It was much faster, and a lot easier to set up than HTML was at that point. This new release of Silverlight is a way to run a web browser inside of an app.
For those who are unfamiliar, Silverlight is a cross-platform web browser that runs in the cloud. It enables you to access web applications and games using the web browser that is running on your desktop. For us, there is no difference to the technology in HTML either. Silverlight can be used the same way you would use a web browser, and we’ve done extensive testing with it.
It is possible that the developers of decade.net are just trying to make a big splash, and they are afraid to reveal the secret. I’d hope that if this was going to be an announcement of a new release of Silverlight, it would have come from the developer of the most popular web browser.
I find this a bit surprising. I mean youve got to give Silverlight a chance because it is basically a version of flash in a browser.
