re: Mozilla TowTruck Drives Real-Time Collaboration
I tried this out with a friend (the example Mozilla provides) and it was pretty nifty.
We could, of course, edit text in the same field as well as see the location of each other's cursors and clicks. If my friend browsed to another page it gave me a prompt offering to follow him.
Awesome that a couple lines of code can enable a page to offer this type of real pear-to-peer connection (understanding, of course, that there's more code on the server doing the negotiation).
