Surfing the internet is usually viewed as a solitary activity. Surfly is trying to change that, offering a way for people to share online browsing sessions with their colleagues, clients, or even friends without having to download any special software to make it happen.
With Surfly, you can show your mom how to use Facebook, walk a client through a new feature on the app you’re designing, or check out travel photos while planning a vacation with a friend. Just head to Surfly and type in the address of the website you want to share. Surfly will provide you with a shortened URL, which you can send to your friend via email or IM. Clicking on the link opens up the exact site you’re looking at. Immediately, your partner can see exactly what you see, including the movements of your mouse. As the person who started the session, you maintain complete control over the browsing. However, other people can join in or drop off your demonstration until you decide the session is through.
Surfly has developed an easy way to share live websites, and it’s a useful tool for people who need to demonstrate how to do things on the web to their clients, colleagues, or even friends. Businesses with remote workers can also utilize Surfly to ensure everyone is on the same page when working on important group projects.
