Microsoft Silverlight is considered an alternative to Adobe Flash, but it’s much more than that. It’s a stable framework that supports web browsers in running rich internet applications. It helps browsers display high-quality multimedia content, graphics, and animations. It’s a freeware that facilitates developers to distribute high-quality content over the internet without breaking the bank. Microsoft Corporation launched this application framework in 2007, but further developments were ceased in 2012. The company now only launches bug fixes from time to time. This browser plugin is suitable for home users as well as small to large businesses.
