As you know, of course, the FAQ (Frequently asked questions) are frequently asked questions that are collected and highlighted on a separate page.

Microsoft Silverlight

Over time, the global network is increasingly filled with sites that represent various web services with a rich dynamic interface. Such resources are based on technologies, thanks to which developers can significantly extend the functionality of their projects and enrich their user interface with elements typical of powerful desktop applications. These technologies include the Silverlight software platform discussed in this article.

This fairly young system was developed by Microsoft and includes an add-in for a browser installed on the user’s machine. The range of application of this platform is quite wide, and adaptations of its plug-in make resources built on its basis accessible to a wide range of users.This technology is a direct competitor to the well-known Adobe Flash, which at one time was very popular among web development. Although in most cases, developers prefer to use Flash technology to implement various kinds of effects in the interface of their projects, Silverlight has several advantages that allow you to use more powerful programming languages ​​and work with multimedia file formats that are not supported by Flash.
