Your queries will be met as we move ahead. Microsoft’s latest gift in the name of Silverlight, is all set to replace the old and traditional Adobe's Flash and become the technology of choice for developing the next generation of cross-browser, cross-platform Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). Moreover, Microsoft has already decided to make this plug-in freely available for all supported platforms. This article presents an introduction to this technology, its applicability, and its future; it also provides links and references for further insight onto this technology.
