Word of the Day

Today’s WhatIs.com Word of the Day is WebRTC, an open source project that seeks to embed real-time voice, text and video communications capabilities in Web browsers. With WebRTC, end-users do not have to download a special software application or use the same client to communicate directly with each other. WebRTC is expected to make video communication more user-friendly.
