This morning I was contacted by an interesting start up in the Ukraine over Skype. As conversations progressed over Skype, when demo time came, my Ukrainian counterpart switched to AIM Pro and asked me to do the same. I was extremely impressed.

AIM Pro has a feature that is remarkable and that is that I got to see the laptop screen of the programmer in Ukraine as we communicated. Seeing someone else laptop screen is a much better way to understand how a Web 2.0 service works than seeing a power point presentation. Especially, when you are talking to the developer in an interactive format.

skype has the same feature with “Unyte Application Sharing”.
Its a plugin, but has the same function you described and it works very well. Also it can be used for remote desktop!

We should expect that from iChat too, if I remember well.

If this is the feature you want give a trial to Glance, much more simple that anything else when it comes to screen sharing.
