Silverlight Browser RRS feed

  • Question

    • Why doesn't microsoft create a silverlight browser where xaml and c#/javascript are native.  And develop a version that works on both windows and phones (including apple and google phones).  
    • If the language supported on the client was IL then the built binaries could be used from any language that compiled to IL.
    • This would mean, java and other development communities could compile to IL and use the browser.
    • Day 1, all that would be required is html + javascript, xaml + IL.
    • This would mean there was a browser with native support and it would bypass the need for silverlight plugin.
    • If this browser was IE, then it would be already available and companies could use it and other vendors may see the benifits and move to it also.
