What is Microsoft Silverlight?
Silverlight is a development platform by Microsoft for creating rich media applications and business applications for the Web, desktop, and mobile devices.
Silverlight is a free plugin powered by the .NET framework that is compatible across multiple browsers, devices and operating systems. With support for advanced data integration, multithreading, HD video using IIS Smooth Streaming, and built in content protection, Silverlight enables online and offline applications for a broad range of business and consumer scenarios.
In 2013, Microsoft ceased development of Silverlight except for patches and bugfixes. Microsoft has set the support end date for Silverlight 5 to be October 2021.
