Rabbit is a new downloadable software app (for Mac only now) that allows you to instant message, video conference with multiple parties and to screencast and share in real-time any music, video clip or app.
"Today, a startup company called Rabbit is launching a closed beta of their "video chat and content sharing application".
But the best way to describe it is a cool and very modern implementation of instant messaging.
The most compelling feature of the app can be distilled down to this: group video conferencing with the ability to screencast music, movies and applications from your Mac.
This means you can watch a movie from a service such as Netflix with your friends in real time. Or you can crop and share a specific part of your web browser or any other Mac app and broadcast it to your friends.
The app is a native Mac client (other platforms to come later), and offers the ability to video chat with an unlimited number of people. People are grouped into Rooms and presented to you in priority based on your own friends, and within each room, individual groups can participate in their own conversations."
