SliverlightPlugin trying to catch up to Flash in crashiness?

NetNewsWire has a feature where it sends me crash logs (if the user clicks the send button) — so I see a fair amount of Flash crashes.

Stuff like this is not at all uncommon:

Thread 9 Crashed:

But lately I’m starting to see Silverlight crashes now too.

Thread 8 Crashed:

Etc. (There are a few others.)

I’ve said it before — one of my favorite things about the iPhone is no Flash. I will now add and no SilverlightPlugin.

(I hate when plugins crash my app. The user doesn’t know that it’s something other than my code that’s causing the crash, and it’s cold comfort anyway.)
