Internet & Networking "Microsoft has released a new showcase of its Silverlight web development frameworks, a graphical search engine called Tafiti. Tafiti, which means 'do research' in Swahili, is an experimental frontend to Microsoft's Live Search engine. It presents search options in three panes on the screen: the left pane is for entering search queries and switching between image, RSS, Web, and News, the middle pane contains the search results, and the right pane is used to 'dock' results using drag-and-drop for looking at later."

RE[5]: Just like everything else

But it's not superior in any way. Just slightly different advantages and disadvantages.

I never said it was superior. That remains to be seen. But it does things all those things do.

Also, the article "bias" doesn't matter. Most of what is stated is fact of what each thing can and can not do.

Besides that: I wrote (XUL && Flash && SVG) || (XUL || Flash || SVG). You forget answering the first part - the combination of the technologies.

Uh? That's not fair at all. Trying to pit it up against 3 technologies combined. You can do that for almost anything.

Silverlight is not anything revolutionary or innovative. It's a different approach to things already being done by other technologies. It tries to solve things in a different way. One of those ways is by letting the developer use many many different languages.
