Posted by Rich On August - 21 - 2009

As a web developer, it is important for me to test my websites in different browsers.

Yuuguu Helps You Collaborate Online with Screen Sharing

Posted by Rich On August - 14 - 2009

If you hold a lot online meetings or if you want a good way to show family members or friends how to complete a task on the computer, you may find Yuuguu a great solution for your needs. Yuuguu is an online collaboration system, which has a free version that is highly functional. I tested this program out with a friend and I am very impressed with its capabilities and want to share it with mintywhite readers.

Like an Instant Messaging Program with Screen Sharing

My first impressions of the program is that it’s like an instant messaging program with screen sharing capabilities. I took a couple of screenshots while using the program and they are shown below:

Upon logging into the system, I notified my friend wants to communicate with me:

Yuuguu 1

As you can see, this program acts like an instant messaging program:

Yuuguu 2

From there, you can share your screen and even control your computer. An example of how this can be useful is as follows: if you have a couple of family members who wanted learn how to use a program, you can have them join you and they can watch you demonstrate the task they’re trying to learn. From there, they can try the same function while you watch and help them along the way.

Yuuguu is still a relatively new program but shows great promise and I highly recommend it.
