    What about Silverlight? They have been beating the HTML5 drum for a while now, so people assumed that Silverlight is dead and HTML5 should be used for cross platform LOB apps. But all of their tooling improvements are forMetro HTML5 apps only. Expression Blend doesn't do HTML5 for websites. It only does HTML5 for native windows Metro apps.
