Opera Software De kogel is door de kerk: as we already talked about earlier, Opera is going to switch to the WebKit engine, leaving its own Presto rendering engine behind. We didn't yet know if they would the switch only on mobile or on the desktop as well, and they cleared that up too: both mobile and desktop Opera Browsers will switch to the WebKit rendering engine.

Let's face it, WebGL is a proprietary API


Lets face it, WebGL is supported by all browsers except IE :-)


It is beyond me how some people can be as egotistic to claim that Microsoft should implement a standard to their web browser


Yes, we got the memo. Microsoft isn't implementing common standards but are defining there incompatible uncommon own ones. Interoperability is bad for vendor-lockin. We know.


FACT is that Microsoft has NEVER pushed Silverlight INTO the browser. Its always been a plugin. Microsoft is NOT forcing or lobbying to have Silverlight become a standard of the web.


Yes, otherwise Silverlight would need to become interoperable between browsers and platforms and that goes against the plan. We know. We know.

Nelson, we again agree on something!

Everything needed to implement Silverlight is provided by Microsoft.

I'm not entirely sure what you're getting at. In fact, Moonlight did a great job of implementing Silverlight.

And you can only implement and run Silverlight by using Microsoft products on Microsoft's latests platforms only. Nothing else works. No way out. No interoperability. A classic vendor lock-in.


I'm not entirely sure what you're getting at. In fact, Moonlight did a great job of implementing Silverlight.


See, I knew you would come with Moonlight. It doesn't support Silverlight at all. Only a very limited subset of a very early version without all required base codecs. It never got beyong that and so got discontinued long ago. You didn't know that Moonlight development stopped and the project got canceled longgggg ago?
