I would also like to have compatibility with "FireFox"
One of the apps in BB App World is "Secure Browser" FileArchiveHaven Version: 22.214.171.1241
It lists Version 126.96.36.1990 offers User Agent Modes: FireFox5 and IE7.
Does this mean it will allow use of FF and IE enabled sites?

OK I'm stuck at work on call with no TV. Not to worry right? The Game is online right? BIG NO if your device doesn't support Silverlight Because NBC is a Microsoft property and The NFL is sponsored this year by NBC.
This equals no Super Bowl love on my Playbook while waiting for non-existant service calls.
This is a BIG incompatible website loss.
110 million viewers none on a Playbook and probably not on any other tablet as well because Silverlight is a proprietary MS product. MS is just as much at a loss. Online and inline video needs to be available to all platforms equally as per HTML 5.

Silverlight does run on non-MS browsers although I'm not sure about any mobile browsers. Unlike ActiveX, though, Microsoft has made Silverlight available for Chrome and Firefox.
PS Netflix uses Silverlight, which is part of the issue there.
Silverlight is a proprietary MS Plug In to most browsers that run on the Wondows OS and only on the Windows OS. Proprietary = no standards = broken web!
Its all about control and not supporting common and open standards which has always been a Gates/Allen/Balmer mantra. MS will only support what MS can profit from which is why they adopted NetWare's standards back in the day bdcause they could profit from the use of NetWare. SilverLight is just more of that backwards thinking...more for the investors less for the users.
