I want to develop a XAML application for my users to use through their browsers. Do they have to install .NET Framework on their computers

What if I am designing a public website (say, web-site for a retail shop), how will .NET 3.0 help me develop the UI.

Note: I am not talking about the back end or web-service design stuff here. just the UI experience

Hi ___anshu,

If you are developing a XAML browser based application (XBAP), your users must have the .NET 3.0 runtime components installed. 

Could you please be more specific in your second question   I'm not entirely certain what you are asking.

If .NET 3.0 Framework is needed for XAML applications, it can not be used for developing internet applications. If the above statement is correct, you already answered my second question.

Is there any other component in dotnet 3.0, which enhances user experience for internet users

Hi ___anshu,

There is a component that is currently in development called WPF/E which enhances the user experience for a more broader audience.  This technology is pretty cool and it is essentially a subset of WPF.  You can begin to develop with WPF/E using the publicly available CTP: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx FamilyId=E63992D3-CCF5-40B9-B98A-D16BCA57467C&displaylang=en

I wrote a blog post comparing XBAPs and WPF/E available here: http://cornucopia30.blogspot.com/2007/01/wpf-whats-difference-between-xbaps-and.html

In addition, I have some WPF/E examples available on my blog: http://cornucopia30.blogspot.com/

Thanks Chad,

The links you have provided are useful. Specially the comparison between "WPF", "XBAPs" and "WPF/E".
