What is Silverlight

Silverlight is a powerful development platform for creating rich media applications and business applications for the Web, desktop, and mobile devices.

Based on the Microsoft .NET framework, the free Silverlight plug-in works across multiple browsers, devices and operating systems to bring new interactivity to the Web. With extensive layout and styling options, powerful communication protocols, robust data access, and support for user interaction and high-definition media, Silverlight helps create fast, smooth, and visually rich customer experiences. Silverlight applications can be developed quickly with the Microsoft Web Platform, Visual Studio, and Expression Studio.
