Windows 7: MIX09: Silverlight 3 looks great in (and out of) the browser

MIX09: Silverlight 3 looks great in (and out of) the browser

As expected, Silverlight 3 was announced today at MIX09, this year's iteration of Microsoft's annual conference for web developers, designers, and enthusiasts. While the keynote that just finished was full of little announcements that were handed out faster than the audience could swallow them, the one that stood out the most was the third iteration of Microsoft's Flash alternative, Silverlight. Links for the first and last beta of Silverlight 3, and the many development tools surrounding it, went live earlier today.

During the keynote, Scott Guthrie, corporate vice president of the .NET Developer Platform at Microsoft, announced a list of improvements that left me wondering if "the third time's the charm." The new beta is 40KB smaller than Silverlight 2, which is not exactly mind-blowing—until you look at what's inside.

I wish more sites would replace flash with silverlight so we'd be able to use our 64-bit browsers

That could happen if Adobe doesn't get their stuff together soon.

i wonder to. I tried the 64bit version for a while, couldn't discover any noticeable advantages. And as soon as a webpage needs more then 3gb to display i prefer not to load it
