In short, WebRTC is a new peer-to-peer technology developed by Google with support from Mozilla to enable a broad range of services like secure video conferencing, anonymous file sharing and even distributed site hosting - all within your Web browser.

The relevant part starts at around 1:10:00 in the video above.
What do you guys think?

So, it's similar to RetroShare?

I've never used RetroShare or anything similar, but from a quick look at Wikipedia, the difference seems to be that with WebRTC you don't have to install and manage any software. Having latest Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox would be enough. So simplicity and usability must be a big plus for adoption, not so sure about security though, but that can probably be worked upon.

Running on windows.  Using browser plug-ins or javascript.  What could go wrong?

Sam Spade: We were talking about a lot more money than this.
Kasper Gutman: Yes, sir, we were, but this is genuine coin of the realm. With a dollar of this, you can buy ten dollars of talk.

Well, the video in the OP is called Linux Action Show, so it can definitely run on Linux too. Ubuntu and Mint come equipped with Firefox by default, so no prob there.

What is critical is how they keep the private key secure (if they even have one). As long as private key is hidden well enough it doesn't matter if it's javascript or something else that handles the rest of the protocol.

Maybe integration with Bitcoin hardware wallets might come in handy.

Someone used WebRTC to create a bitcoin escrow https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=299168.0.
Also an exchange https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=259659.0

So webrtc is in the bitcoin community already

As I know, webRTC is a P2P video conference engine, how can you guys above can correlate to BTC?

Maybe I'm wrong, if is does, I'm very interesting to know the details, thanks much.

If the developers of Google then it is not anonymous. In this world nothing is anonymous. If the system someone developed something he knows how to circumvent the protection.

In our time no one and nothing remains anonymous. A bunch of satellites, sensors, surveillance cameras. All in all should. Especially on the Internet.
