    "what a load of crap from Microcrap"

    November 7, 2013  |   By tuan-bui

    Version: Microsoft Silverlight 4.0.60531.0

    Pros

    absolutely none

    Cons

    this crap byproduct from microsoft still exist because of stupid netflix. it only lingers around like a dried up poop on a dog's behind.

    everytime i play a movie on netflix..."plugin-failure". numerous time uninstalling/reinstalling, countless ways of removing and installing. still the same crap.

    NETFLIX get your head out of your ass and ditch this crapware

    "Worse than Flash"

    September 16, 2013  |   By CyberSkull

    Version: Microsoft Silverlight 4.0.60531.0

    Pros

    I need Silverlight to watch Netflix. Not really a pro.

    Cons

    Always invokes the discrete (high-end) graphics card on my MacBook, increasing head output needlessly and quickly quaffing my battery. Very inefficient even on the simplest of tasks.

    Summary

    Don't use it unless you have to.

    "On Netflix does not work properly - Microsoft crap"

    September 11, 2013  |   By charles.hine

    Version: Microsoft Silverlight 4.0.60531.0

    Pros

    jerky picture most of the time -

    Cons

    jerky picture not synchronized with sound, resolved temporarily with removing silverlight from Library and reinstalling, but only temporary - MacBook Pro 1,2 Mac OS X 10.6.8 - true with both Firefox and Safari - it seems to screw up the whole web page rendering process, at least on Safari, even after one has stopped fustily trying to view Netflix.

    I have never written a review before. I wish there were negative stars.
