Internet Explorer Let's continue the browser talk for a while. Let's move from the pinnacle of browsing, all the way down to the very drainage pit: Internet Explorer 6. To me, Internet Explorer 6 is that annoying zombie that just won't die that chops off 80 of your health in a grueling midnight Left 4 Dead expert session. Microsoft may not say so outright, but they seem to be implying they agree with me.

I pity the development team--no SVG, no Canvas, no Video/Audio tags, wonky JS/DOM, lack of even basic CSS. It must be hell. IE is going to haemorrhage marketshare no matter what MS do unless they can play by everybody else's rules--and that means HTML5, Video-tag, SVG, decent JS speed and so on.


SVG? So what... silverlight gives you vector graphics.

Canvas... so what... silverlgiht dev does not need it

Video/AUdio? silverlight gives it to you

JS/DOM... so what... I have C# and .net

CSS.... silverlight maintains my layout for me accross browsers.

.net and xml based vector graphics.... beats teh crap out of HTML 5 and JS/DOM
