Google Attempts to Integrate Video Chat in Chrome

Google is out to compete with Skype as the search engine giant is integrating an open-source video chat software into the Google Chrome browser. The plan would go beyond the features of Gmail and Google Voice.

The WebRTC is introduced as an open-source, royalty-free audio-and-video chat software, even promising to work with other browser developers such as Mozilla and Opera. Because it is open-source, any website can make use of the new software and create their very own program that could compete with Skype.

With these developments, you wonder whether Skype is shaking on its knees.
