Ericsson releases WebRTC enabled mobile browser

Ericsson has released what it is terming an “experimental” WebRTC-enabled browser on the Apple’s USA App Store and on Google Play. The browser is called Bowser.  The browser “will finally enable web developers to add audio and video functionality to their mobile web applications” the company said. WebRTC is based on work ongoing within the World Wide Web Consortium and the Internet Engineering Task Force to develop a standard, interoperable approach to real-time communication (RTC) using audio and video in Web browsers without the need for any plug-ins.  Ericsson said that the browser enables html5 apps to access the local camera and microphone on a phone, as well as establish audio and video calls to another device using the WebRTC API.
