"Strong developer growth confirms Jabber's status as one of the most active open source movements in existence."

"Jabber.com, Inc., a subsidiary of Webb Interactive Services, Inc., today announced that the Jabber Open Source Project has surpassed 50 active sub-projects, all focused on extending functionality of the Jabber real-time XML instant messaging platform. The accelerated growth is attributed to increased interest in Jabber within the open source development community, along with an increase in the number of companies who view Jabber as the most flexible and forward looking platform upon which they can deploy instant messaging applications and services."

"Of the over 50 active projects, at least 17 have offerings available today, ranging from Jabber clients which combine features of Napster for file-sharing to clients specifically designed for use within highly important projects such as Netscape's Mozilla browser."
