When Microsoft unveiled Silverlight at the MIX07 conference in Las Vegas last week, the new cross-platform browser plug-in for rich media content lacked support for the popular Opera Web browser. Instead, Redmond announced that Silverlight would support Internet Explorer, Firefox and the Mac-compatible Safari Web browser.
Developer Division General Manager Scott Guthrie, in his first blog post since the MIX conference, takes a look inside Silverlights technological underpinnings, but fails to mention Opera.
Now it appears that Opera is in Silverlights sights. A new Silverlight developer reference graphic, seen here, displays an Opera icon -- adorned with the tag "soon" -- alongside the already-supported browsers (you can see it in the lower right-hand corner of the graphic).
