Silverlight HTTP Networking Stack



I found a neat article by one of the Silverlight team describing the way network calls work in xap applications.

What I find particularly interesting is the fact that the host browsers communications stack is used for HTTP communication.   This means that cookies and authentication from the current browser session are sent in these calls.

This means that composite applications that support both web and Silverlight content should work really well.
