Web Application Performance Hit with Silverlight

Feb 25, 2008 at 9:44 AM
We had a web application and after implementing silverlight control, we notice that the pages takes longer time to load.
*We replace asp.net tab control with Silverlight tab control with animations similar to Microsoft Silverlight web site.
*A media control in the login page and simple animated images.

Do you have any ideas?

How much slower does it take? You are downloading more content when using a Silverlight control, and requiring more to load when the page starts (the .NET framework =)), but you shouldn't feel much slower.
