How does silverlight run? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can anyone point me to a link with detailed description on how Silverlight works. I mean in the sense that, does it run as a separate process or does it run in the same process as browser? Does the silverlight plugin run in the same address space as the browser? Basically more details on how exactly the silverlight code is parsed and rendered and the process which take cares of it and where does this process run?

    Like say if there are 2 tabs each with silverlight applications, then is the same silverlight process taking care of both of these or is there a separate silverlight plugin/engine taking care of silveright application in each page?
