    Not too shabby, there is still a lot of content on the internet that requires RealPlayer, glad to see they are updating it :)

    And as the article says, maybe this will make Apple drop Quicktime Pro and include all the features in OS X.

    The last update we saw was in 2002 I think.

    I just wish Microsoft would release a better version of WMP for OS X. When given the choice of only WMP and Real, I always use Real, just because the Mac version of WMP sucks so much

    They released a new version of RealOne Player earlier this year, to add support for AAC.

    Steve may just allow them a few minutes. It is Real Player 10 for X after all.

    Oooh. An "integrated web browser".

    Whatever, man... i didn't get why Winamp had a browser in it, and I don't get why Real would have a browser in it.

    Rendezvous support is cool, tho.

    At least it doesn't have that god-awful integrated browser they had integrated into Realplayer on the PC in the Win98-2k days.... I hated that with a passion...but then I guess mostly because it installed the realdownload aspect too and it kept popping up these annoying ads whenever I tried to download something.

    I wouldn't use realplayer for anything beyond playing streaming content from websites, but it seems to do that minimally well....
