Looks like they also added support for tab sharing - nice to see that feature get some additional use.  +Mark Scott

I still fail to see how this is particularly risky for an Android phone in a typical use case.

I am very proud to live in Stockholm. It's not a coincidence.

WebDrop?
 
HTML5 Clone of Apple's AirDrop

ShareDrop allows you to transfer files directly between devices, without having to upload them to any server first. It uses WebRTC for secure peer-to-peer file transfer and Firebase for presence management and WebRTC signaling.

At the moment ShareDrop allows you to send files only to other devices in the same local network, i.e. devices with the same public IP address.

The main difference between ShareDrop and AirDrop is that ShareDrop requires internet connection to find devices, while AirDrop doesn't need one - it creates ad-hoc wireless network between them. On the other hand, ShareDrop allows you to send files between mobile (Android) and desktop devices.

Supported Browsers:

* Chrome 33+ (Desktop and Mobile)

Firefox support is coming soon.

Mayday Mayday
 
Saw this article by Chad Hart last week, where he does some Wireshark debugging to find out if the Amazon "Mayday" help feature is powered by WebRTC. It’s a really good article, and gives an excellent view into the topology of the Mayday system; regarding WebRTC, he determines that “there is a very high probability that this is WebRTC for the video with a lower probability on the audio”

Well, it’s true. We did our own forensics a few months back and determined that Mayday is completely WebRTC-based, using the Chrome WebRTC stack, the G.711 audio codec, and most likely, the VP8 video codec. There are a number of hints in the Wireshark trace that give this away, even though the media is encrypted with SDES-SRTP; we are pretty sure the video is VP8 because the observed packetization exactly matches how WebRTC handles VP8.

Overall Mayday is a great WebRTC app; my only complaint is the use of the G.711 codec results in quite poor-quality audio for a modern app. Here’s hoping Mayday starts using the Opus codec soon!

Probably the best summary of the situation I could find. 

Best bit:

 Being prejudiced against gay and lesbian people today is turning out to be a bit like being prejudiced against black people in the 1950s. People with those views are simply on the wrong side of history, and companies don't want executives distracting their staff or customers with views that, increasingly, seem extreme and mean-spirited, even if they are private.

http://www.businessinsider.com/mozilla-ceo-anti-gay-views-2014-4?op=1
At the heart of the move is a fundamental contradiction: Eich's foes disapproved of Eich's intolerance for LGBT people. But in the end they could not tolerate Eich's opinions, which for years he kept private.

as i said above, i don't think it's a "bit" like being prejudiced against black people in the 50s - people are still prejudiced against black people today!
