It seems that finally Silverlight will be a worthy competitor to Flash.
The new beta shows off new hardware integration, interactive controls and the ability to download Silverlight applications to your desktop. Silverlight 3 takes advantage of the latest in hardware. Most notably, it supports multitouch devices â€” the kind youâ€™ll find mostly on Macs right now. The multimedia software also takes advantage of hardware (GPU) acceleration and 3-D visuals.
