Sorry to ask this question but I am not too sure if I got it right or not about Silverlight from Microsoft.
I believe it replaced Internet Explorer so it is a web browser. It looks like it is very useful for web?s developers.
I?m not a web developer and I don?t download films or playing games on internet.
My question is: I am only using Firefox as a browser and since it looks like if Silverlight integrate well with Firefox, I think, should I have it in my laptop or doesn?t make any difference based on the thing I have been saying above? Maybe Firefox will work faster?
Thanks all of you for an answer.

Re: Silverlight

Silverlight is the Microsoft version of Adobe's flash, so to say.

So if a website uses Flash to show dynamic content, you need Adobe's Flashplayer to see that. And if the website uses Silverlight to show dynamic content, you need Microsoft's Silverlight to see it.

That's about all there is to say about the subject for the normal (non-programmer) user like you.
