Project Description
Comic tool is a pure Silverlight 4 cbr/cbz viewer that aims to be as lightweight as possible while having basic viewing features. Files an be opened via a URL and other input mechanisms will be added. Indexing and export features will be added with an out of browser mode. Basic viewing features will should remain simple and intuitive. No feature overload.

The silverlight application itself only requires the xap file and a hosting html page. No backend ASP.NET/WCF services are required. To use URLs across domains, a clientaccesspolicy.xml file is needed on the destination domain: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc197955(VS.95).aspx
