Silverlight applications can be installed to the system for offline access and they be used using the Start Menu or desktop shortcuts, and run without the browser window. So users can check whether the applications are operates under the browser or vice versa.

3 – Supports AAC audio decoding and H.264 video
Silverlight 3 supports perspective 3D which enables 3D transformations of 2D elements. These transformations, as well as many 2D operations like stretches, alpha blending etc are hardware accelerated. More animations can be created on Silverlight elements using HLSL to make use of pixel shaders. Silverlight now uses the GPU to accelerate the composition of Visual Trees

Microsoft Silverlight Developement Development Tools

Microsoft has positioned Microsoft Expression Blend versions 2.0 and 2.5 for designing the UI of Silverlight 1.0 and 2 applications respectively. Visual Studio 2008 can be used to develop and debug Silverlight applications. To create Silverlight projects and let the compiler target CoreCLR, Visual Studio 2008 requires the Silverlight Tools for Visual Studio.

Silverlight applications can be written in any .NET programming language. Because of this reason, any development tools which can be used with .NET languages can work with Silverlight, provided they can target the Silverlight CoreCLR for hosting the application, instead of the .NET Framework CLR.

A Silverlight project contains the Silverlight.js and CreateSilverlight.js files which initializes the Silverlight plugin for use in HTML pages, a XAML file for the UI, and code-behind files for the application code. Silverlight applications are debugged in a manner similar to ASP.NET applications.

Visual Studio’s CLR Remote Cross Platform Debugging feature can be used to debug Silverlight applications running on a different platform as well.

In conjunction with the release of Silverlight 2.0 Eclipse was added as a development tool option.
