    What is Microsoft Silverlight and what is its Use? Pros and Cons of Microsoft Silverlight?

    I came across the term “Microsoft Silverlight” so many times and used it as well but never tried to know about it. Now I want to know about it and its importance so Is there anyone who can help me to explain the term “Microsoft Silverlight”. Why do we use it and what are its advantages and limitations of this software?

    Microsoft Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform, and cross-device plug-in for delivering .NET based media and rich application experiences to users on the Internet. Similar to an Adobe Flash file Microsoft Silverlight files are stored in a compressed XAP (pronounced like zap) file.

    Microsoft Silverlight is an application framework for writing and running rich Internet applications, with features and purposes similar to those of Adobe Flash. The run-time environment for Silverlight is available as a plug-in for web browsers running under Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. While early versions of Silverlight focused on streaming media, current versions support multimedia, graphics and animation, and give developers support for CLI languages and development tools. Silverlight is also one of the two application development platforms for Windows Phone.

    You need it if you want to go to web pages that use it. If you don't,
    you don't need it.

    As far as I'm concerned, you should have it, since it gives you the
    ability to go to web pages you might want

    dear friend,

    Microsoft is similar to Adobe Flash player which helps you to Run the rich websites & the flash contents.

    You don't need to install Silverlight if you don't use internet.

    Silverlight helps you to access .NET type internet files.

    Silverlight stream different online videos as well as flash contents.

    It is also used to make Vector Graphics and animations.

    PRO are those program which can give you the better performance in Silverlight.

    But CON s are faulty & buggy programs which affects the work of Silverlight.
