i've started writing an RTP infrastructure for Pd [1], though it 
currently only supports uncompressed audio.
RTP is a pretty standard protocol, and latency can go down to a few ms.
there are also RTCP components.
keep in mind though, that this is not a "plug-and-play" object, but 
instead a framework (so you might need to know what RTP is and ow it 
works in order to get it do what you want).

whether it works in browser or not, i don't know.
keep in mind, that browsers are still mainly consumer goods, and as such 
latency doesn't matter so much (if you only listen to a stream on a 
remote place it doesn't matter if it is 10ms behind or 2mins - since 
there is no feedback and nothing to compare with, tere is no "absolute"
