(TECH) Israelis Bring Video Chat To Facebook

"Dany Fishel and Ilan Leibovitch's new application lets you see your friends, play games with them, even watch films together over the internet.

Do you use Facebook's chat? Now you can also see the people you're talking to – for free. A new application was launched Wednesday on the social networking site, developed by the Israeli start-up company GixOO. The application, known as Rounds, enables video calls at a click – with no need to install any program.

The company was established by Dany Fishel, 31, and Ilan Leibovitch, 29, two years ago. The idea was born when Fishel and Leibovitch wanted to set up a kind of speed dating site, in which surfers would meet six other surfers within half an hour based on the program's profile matching."
