    Silverlight has been slated for closure since 2013?

    @Voxera I didn't. I used it around 2009/10 maybe? And then it basically started dying right after, with MS officially starting to deprecate it in 2012 I think.

    @pleuph ok, yes 2009 it was still on the rise.

    Personally I had to bad experience from flash that I stayed away, especially since I saw that firefox was adding more and more tools within the browser that I really never needed it.
