I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit on my system. I am using Mozilla Firefox 37.0 and Google Chrome 41.0 browsers.
I went to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-10/about in both browsers. In Chrome I could see the content on the webpage perfectly. In Firefox it asked me to install Microsoft Silverlight. I'm surprised that on Chrome it didn't ask me to install Silverlight.
Please explain me what is Silverlight, why it is needed, and how to install this on my system in an easy, efficient and reliable way?
P.S. Please don't suggest to do anything using WINE as I know it's not a reliable approach.
Thanks in advance.
