I highly doubt they are dropping their technology, the web based chat 
will im sure stay, just like google has the web based gtalk inside of 
gmail, they are just adding an XMPP interface to their chat app.

That's one thing im wondering, my thought would be probably not given 
how their friend function works (i.e. you need to be on facebook to link 
friends, or whether they will add a whole you class of external friends 
to handle federated friends.
