    Looked in the forum via searching and did not find a definitive answer but wanted to see if there was any update? Possible to install silverlight or is there a workaround to view silverlight enabled websites? Thanks!

    Np, I'm sorry, but Silverlight is a Microsoft product and will not run on an iPad.

    However, you can use a remote login/access app (such as TeamViewer, Splashtop, LogMeIn, etc.) to access your home computer (PC) - which CAN run Silverlight.

    Using the remote access app(s) is really the only way I can figure to view Silverlight-enabled sites. Sorry.

    The Flash enabled browsers like Puffin 'might' work as well. Since the websites go through a remote server first, it would depend on whether that server had Sliverlight, as well as Flash, installed. No way to tell without trying, or contacting the developers and asking.

    Puffin does have a trial version, so it's probably worth trying.

    Ah, Puffin is a no-go as well. Their FAQ specifically states they don't support Silverlight.

    Still try Puffin, as, IMNSHO :))), it's the best browser for viewing Flash. It's very fast and I've not seen any lag when viewing - on the infrequent times when I need a Flash-viewer. But, no Silverlight. Sorry.

    Thanks, Marilyn.
