Last week, Google announced that they had begun working "to enable Chrome with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities" - in other words, to allow your browser to send and receive streaming audio and video. Instead of having to download to download software to make calls, such as with Skype, or install a special plugin, such as with Gmail's voice and video chat, these applications could be built directly into the browser. Whoa!
One obvious application of WebRTC is to build a phone in your browser. Perhaps Impact Dialing will use it so that you don't have to use a separate phone to connect to our hosted predictive dialer - instead, you'd connect directly through our web application, using WebRTC.
What else could WebRTC be used for?
