    Does "silverlight" do much/any improvement for either browising or
    viewing streamed video as per ms claims?

    May have missed what the claims for users' uses as it seem to imply
    that silverlight improve imaging, at least for developers; I'm not
    a developer.

    If you are just an end user, you don't get to make that decision.
    To actually use it as an end user you have to visit sites that have
    implemented it.
    http://www.silverlightsites.net/ - some sample sites to browse.

    I see that one of the sites is "Build your Toyota". I didn't know
    Silverlight could improve that problem... ;-)

    Silverlight is used to view pages built with silverlight. Aside from that it does
    not do anything to the pages that you view

    Silverlight is MS's version of Flash, so it is up to the web page
    developers on whether or not you need Silverlight.

    Thanks everyone. The win7 update keep wanting me to update to
    silverlight; will "hide" it until I can figure how to delete it. The
    ms explanation for the "update" is misleading.

    Any site you go to that uses it will prompt you for the Silverlight 3
    install.
