    Good, but do we really want someone to have to download an add-on just to view our site? Not me, at least!

    So how is this any better than Flash? Or is Microsoft just trying to get a piece too?

    Leland, we expect users to do a lot of things: download Flash plug-ins, accept EULAs and Terms & Conditions, enable JavaScript, etc. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
