    Is Silverlight supported on any of the BB browsers? because MS is pushing out Outlook.com on everybody that uses Hotmail, Windows Live Mail etc. whether we like it or not.
    A specific requirement for Outlook.com is the inclusion of Silverlight, which I understand is not currently supported on BB.
    Are we looking at ALL BB users being unable to use Outlook.com, once MS pull the rug on Hotmail and WLM???

    I have been using my outlook.com on my playbook for quite some time, when it was first released the webmail feature did not work but I can confirm it does now without issue. It isn't using Silverlight however.

    Do firefox and chrome support silverlight.....?

    I suppose if you wanted to access your outlook.com email from your browser then you would have a problem, though I've never actually tried that before. The wonderful thing about the playbook and other bb devices is our great native email that doesn't require us to use the browser to check our email.

    Outlook.com doesn't use Silverlight.

    Silverlight is actually a "deprecated" technology that's being wound down. Outlook.com is rendered in HTML5, though it seems to be a bit of a weird implementation (figures for an MS product).
