Internet & Networking "One researcher has decided he wants to make Skype open source by reverse engineering the protocol the service uses. In fact, he claims to have already achieved that reverse engineering feat on a new skype-open-source blog. The source code has been posted for versions 1.x/3.x/4.x of Skype as well as details of the rc4 layer arithmetic encoding the service uses."

Safari 5 has an extensions framework but I'm not sure how much they let you tweak Safari with it. As far as Apple reinventing stuff goes, sometimes I wish Steve would go back to what he said at the '97 WWDC: Apple doesn't have to be different just much better.

But then again, I like most of the stuff they do different! ;)
