Apple Browser and iChat Updates

MacOSRumors echos rumors that iChat will be gaining video and voice functionality next year... along with added codec support provided for Quicktime streams.

They also believe a Apple-branded Chimera-based browser will be released next year. Speculation on such a project was sparked by David Hyatt's employment at Apple in July.

Long-time Apple fans will remember that Apple had marketed their own browser years ago - Cyberdog... which was subsequently discontinued along with their OpenDoc technology.

Spymac first posted rumors that Apple may break free from Microsoft IE as soon as MacWorld SF - but did not specify which browser they would migrate to.
