Besides video chatting, Festoon supports sharing of applications (even the entire desktop) with your participants (see Figure 9). For example, I can selectively pick the application I want to share with my caller through the menu named Sharing.

In this example, I have selected to share IE with my caller, and so you will notice that IE will display a message indicating that it is shared (see Figure 10).

On the recipient's end, they will see the content of your IE in a Festoon presentation window (see Figure 11). If there are changes to the original IE window, the changes would be downloaded and updated in the window. Note that the updating is not instantaneous and tends to be slow.
