WebRTC what does the future of Real-Time browser communications mean?

WebRTC is the latest in peer to peer communications via the browser. We are talking about Chat, Video and Audio completed transmitted via the browser, signaled and connected using servers still on the back-end.

Even though a great new piece of ingenuity it still requires a server or a service paid to commercial servers in order to run effectively. This exchange is called Signaling.

Which is basically is a series of processes allowing each peer browser to Call and Respond to each others, even though passing very little data between in order to work.

In just a few lines of JavaScript code you can have yourself what in essence if the Skype or Today on your application or website. But better and more robust. You can read more about WebRTC on webrtc.org which coincidentally just turned 5 years old. How time flies!
