RIP: Microsoft SilverlightOne more time.

After pretty much abandoning the Silverlight development, then not supporting it on mobile or Metro version of Internet Explorer, it looks like the software giant has finally put the last nail into the Flash alternative’s coffin. One has to wonder if there is any empty space left for it anyway.

What do we mean by that? As it turns out, Microsoft Edge will not support Silverlight, as simple as that. The news come from the Microsoft itself, who stated that this is due to a removal of ActiveX.

Say hello to the HTML5.
