I just went to checkout the Silverlight website, and was presented with this message:
Your current browser does not support WPF/E (codename). Click here for more details on WPF/E-supported browsers and platforms.
I am using Opera of course. So I click through to the suggested link, and here’s what I find:
Silverlight media capabilities include fast, cost-effective delivery of high-quality audio and video to all major browsers including Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer running on the Mac or on Windows.
I realize that Safari is the offical browser for the Mac, but I still think that Opera is being unfairly left out by Microsoft. And it’s not the first time – it took them a very long time to support Opera with ASP.NET Ajax.
Especially with Silverlight, I think Opera should be supported. It is widely used on mobile phones and other devices, like the Nintendo Wii.
