    With all of the fuss about Apple not supporting Flash on it's Iphone and Ipad platforms, the focus has been on the replacement technology of HTML5. One of the questions I had sought was how does HTML5 replace Flash Video Chat technology.

    The answer is the implementation of the HTML5 standard, web sockets. Web sockets allows real time two-way communication between a web server and the browser. However, it looks like the web server has to support web sockets.

    Does Litespeed plan on supporting web sockets by adding it to their server product?

    Currently, there is an Apache extension for web sockets available here: http://code.google.com/p/pywebsocket/.

    Here is a basic wiki that lists several other web servers that are starting to support it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Sockets

    Great. Another technology layer to worry about and for bad guys to exploit.
