Pipelight an alternative to Silverlight for Ubuntu

Pipelight an alternative to Silverlight for ubuntu, is a special browser plugin which allows one to use windows only plugins inside Linux browsers by embedding Silverlight directly in any Linux browser that supports Netscape Plugin API (Firefox, Google Chrome / Chromium, Opera…). Pipelight consists out of two parts: A Linux library which is loaded into the browser and a Windows program started in Wine. The Windows program, called pluginloader.exe, simply simulates a browser and loads the Silverlight DLLs.
