GoInstant’s co-browsing technology lets two people in different places browse the web together without additional software or plug-ins. Ideally, this means that you and your co-workers can be in different locations and see the exact same site information and media. You can each click, type, and scroll together, and the service works across desktops, laptops, or tablets.
