Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube all let you watch whatever you want, whenever you want. But if you wanted to watch with friends or family, you had to figure out when and where to meet in real life. Rabbit fixes that with a browser-based video chat service that lets you watch whatever you want with friends, no matter where they are.
The uses aren’t just limited to video. Rabbit’s creators say the software is great for sharing documents, playing games, co-browsing with a friend, or text chatting if someone doesn’t have a microphone handy.
Send your Rabbit chat room’s URL to up to nine friends, and they’ll immediately pop in—no signing up or creating an account required. You can hand off browser control to anyone in the room using the remote control icon (red when you’re in charge, grey when control is up for grabs, disappears when someone else is controlling), and everyone sees the same thing at the same time.
