Re: Good Start
I very much agree with you. HTML5 has been proven to be a source of fewer vulnerabilities. However, if it becomes more mainstream do we think maybe HTML5 will become more vulnerable in the future?

"... Microsoft Silverlight Next?  ..."

I am not sure if anybody using Silverlight for their projects anymore. Anybody I talked to recently they were all got out of it.

" ... plug-in free web movement ..."

I agree. There should be less need to plug-ins, we need to be ready to switch between apps if we go with that tough. There is not going to be one app that does everything we want.

"... Java SDK dependencies pose a larger risk ..."

Everything related to client side should go to HTML5 in my view. It is hard to keep up with vulnerabilities if there are too many options.

Microsoft Silverlight Next?
I am so happy I am speechless!  The importance of this move will be understood over the next couple years.  Finally, kudos to Oracle for "getting it" - at least on plug-in free web movement.  Next?

Good Start
This is a good start but I think Java SDK dependencies pose a larger risk due to the level of effort behind upgrading along with app testing than retiring a plugin would. Can someone explain this in further detail?
