Surfing Buddies

You no longer need to surf alone - at Lifehacker I found an introduction to an extension for Firefox called Yakalike. It allows users visiting a website to chat with each other in a chatroom interface in the browser (a small window opens up at the screen bottom). It doesn't save transcripts, but would be useful for learners to view and analyze web sites at the same time.

This is a great tool. I often have "webquest" activities and it is useful to have a tool that learners can use to interactively evaluate the worth opf a site before reccomending it.
