For web meetings and technical support, there is nothing more useful that screen sharing and remote desktop control. Back in "the day", we used pre-installed applications like pcAnywhere and VNC... software that had to be pre-setup and configured and quite often, left security holes. Then came the SAAS (Software-As-A-Service) model used by GoToMyPC, WebEx and LogMeIn. This types of service is usually costly and charged by the monthly. One of my favorites out there now is TeamViewer. This is a commercial software, costs about $800, but can be used personally for free. So now, with extensions coming into play, we may be able to use a quick, easy to install, free extension, loaded in our web browsers and muilti-platform friendly. Next stop... remote control of your smartphone!
