Jybe is a free (beta) add-in for Internet Explorer and Firefox that lets Jybe users jointly surf the web. This concept is not a new one but the fact that Jybe works on either browser is really cool meaning that two co-workers can browse the same web site via Jybe even if they both use different browsers. A Windows user can share a browser session with a Mac user via Firefox too. Jybe is a free service that looks pretty cool and I intend to try it out to see how well it works. You can check out what users are saying in the Jybe forums before trying the plug-in. Jybe has some nice business applications of the service as listed on their web site:
