When I firstI thought – ooo – a neat way to do webinars. I’m always looking for free tools to assist in web programs (not sure why – just something I’m interested in). After trying it out with a friend though – I have to say that has a little more usability testing needed before it’s ready for prime time.
Found via MoMB, Browzmi is described:
You can now browse, chat, share and discover the web together with your friends
First, after we signed up we couldn’t find each other to become fellow “browsers.” We ended up using the new user list to find each other – and after about an hour of poking around found out that the “tag search” also searched for people. It looks like browsing together is not instantaneous as I was hoping – it requires that fellow browsers click on what their friends are browsing in order to join them – this also means that you don’t see what your friends are typing – so it’s hard to know when they’re about to leave a page. At one point my friend and I both clicked on each others “browsing” button and found ourselves swapping places
In short – a neat tool to play with and a maybe even a tool with potential, but right now, it’s just a toy for me.
