Microsoft Silverlight Alternatives

    Microsoft Silverlight is described as 'Silverlight is a development platform by Microsoft for creating rich media applications and business applications for the Web, desktop, and mobile devices' and is a popular app in the Web Browsers category. There are seven alternatives to Microsoft Silverlight for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Self-Hosted solutions and JavaScript. The best alternative is Adobe Animate. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try OpenSilver or Ceylon. Other great apps like Microsoft Silverlight are Jabaco (Free), KoolMoves (Paid), WebAnimator (Paid) and Mediator (Paid).
