Tokbox

TokBox believes in the power of face-to-face communication. That's why they created the innovative TokBox live in-browser videoconferencing, the simplest, most engaging way for you to connect face-to-face with up to twenty of your colleagues, customers or friends at once. Thousands of people video chat using TokBox everyday. They use it to collaborate within and across teams, video conference with customers or simply to share experiences with friends and colleagues. It's really easy to get started. All you need is an internet connection and a webcam. No expensive equipment required!

Chatroulette

Taking TokBox's browser-based video chat to the next level, Chatroulette lets you connect, via webcam, with a video chat partner chosen completely at random from users on the site all over the world. Either party can end the chat session any time they please, which has motivated people to be interesting--whether funny, terrifying, surprising, or even naked--from the get-go to keep the other party chatting. The New York Times calls it 'akin to speed-dating tens of thousands of perfect strangers -- some clothed, some not.'

The site, created by a 17 year old in Russia, has exploded in popularity in recent months, growing from 300 users in December 2009 to '10,000 by the beginning of February,' writes New York Magazine. It's been described as 'the Internet. UNFILTERED,'[33] 'enthralling and distasteful,'[34] and even the 'future of the Internet.'[35]
