Although the word "turtle" is widely used to describe all members of the order Testudines, it is also common to see certain members described as terrapins, tortoises or sea turtles as well. Precisely how these alternative names are used, if at all, depends on the type of English being used.
* British English normally describes these reptiles as turtles if they live in the sea; terrapins if they live in fresh or brackish water; or tortoises if they live on land. However, there are exceptions to this where American or Australian common names are in wide use, as with the Fly River turtle.
* American English tends to use the word turtle for all species regardless of habitat, although tortoise may be used as a more precise term for any land-dwelling species. Oceanic species may be more specifically referred to as sea turtles. The name "terrapin" is strictly reserved for the brackish water diamondback terrapin, Malaclemys terrapin; the word terrapin in this case being derived from the Algonquian word for this animal.
* Australian English uses turtle for both the marine and freshwater species but tortoise for the terrestrial species.
Now that is weird. I find the performance of Silverlight to be better on Safari than on Firefox, at least on the 800k streams at mlb.tv, haven't really had the chance to try any other sites. For me the advantage is that it seems to support DRMed Windows Media content that Flip4Mac does not and definitely outperforms it.
Thanks for the heads-up on Flash 10, I'll have a butchers.
"Does Silverlight *really* work on Linux or Mac ? No ?"
Seems to work just fine on my Mac (Mac Mini, 1.5GHz Core Solo) for watching mlb.tv streams. I get better performance using Silverlight than if I used Flip4Mac.
Considering the well-known crappy implementation of Flash on the Mac platform I'll carry on using Silverlight, thank you.
