"The browser plays a key role in how Novell is delivering
Silverlight compatibility to Linux users. For the Beta release

Moonlight extension currently supports Firefox 2 and 3 with a proof
of concept being built for Opera. De Icaza noted that he plans on a
WebKit version as well which would work for Apple Safari and Google
Chrome users as well."
