Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The web platform has a critical gap where a native proprietary application like Skype can do something a web application can’t. The intention of WebRTC is to close this gap by connecting users to each other in real-time simply by loading a web page. WebRTC is technology enabling peer-to-peer communication via browsers, plugin-free. It’s still a new technology and has not yet been finally standardized, nor does it come without new privacy- and security concerns. Some say that it will change the landscape of web applications while others say it’s overrated.
