    Chrome doesn't support Silverlight's windowless mode correctly so in the near future, the Silverlight creative won't appear in Chrome on the homepage any more either. Ditto Safari for Windows and Opera 9, though it looks like Opera 10 alpha supports windowless Silverlight just fine.

    Most user agent sniffing code hasn't been updated to account for Chrome, which pretends to be Safari, for whatever reason:

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/ Safari/525.19

    Bummer...I want C9 in SL in Chrome! (waaaa waaaa waaaa...) 

    I'm not sure I get it...
    • There are plenty of "working" examples of SL apps working in full-screen (is this different from windowless?)
    • Tim Heuer teases us with "it's unsupported but all you gotta do is":

      On line 93 in Silverlight.supportedUserAgent.js, insert this line:

         1: else if (ua.indexOf('Chrome') >= 0) {
         2:     slua.Browser = 'Chrome';
         3: }
    ...but I'm not a web guy, so I'm sure there's a very good reason for not enabling it.
