A new online start-up with backing from the founders of YouTube and Sequoia Capital might just be the next big thing on the Internet. TokBox is a free service that lets you talk with your friends over live video through a web browser.
The idea is simple: millions of people now have web cams either built-in to their laptops, or connected to their desktops, and TokBox makes it easy to send a video message or video chat invitation via email.
Once your friend clicks the link and configures their camera, the video chat takes place within a web browser.
If your friend doesn't have a web cam you can send them a video message that they can view at TokBox. Once you've set up your TokBox account, you can add friends from your AIM, MSN or Yahoo account, and ping them via IM when you want to video chat online.
