Get rid of register form, and totally go anonymous

Internet users seem tired of filling registration forms, so many ideas coming up to meet this need, such as Form Filler, Password Manager, OpenID, etc. Form Filler can make filling out web forms a one click process, many browser has autofill extensions; Password Manager can manager your username and password in one place, so you will never forget, but it's a high risk that the password manager site itself may be hacked and your password stolen; OpenID allows you to use an existing account to sign in to multiple websites, without needing to create new passwords, but many websites still ask you to fill out more details after you sign in with your OpenID. This applies to Facebook or Twitter account, many websites allow you sign in with your facebook or Twitter account, but you end up create another account at that website and surrender your facebook or Twitter network to the website.


The ultimate, once for all resolution seems to totally get rid of registering, everything goes anonymous, except for some serious transactions, such as your email account, library, Internet banking, etc.


Now, here is a dating site, or webchat, called Vuala. "Vuala is a new dating site. It is a place where you can always find a new friend. You can chat, draw, play games and even more. It is without any registration and it is completely free."


You specify your gender and age, and choose a friend's gender and age, then type something and click the Right Arrow button, somebody will show up instantly, and start chatting.


So you always chat with a stranger, and even if a family or buddy at another end of the line, you still don't know who they are, how do find other friends that you actually know? So some people think this is cool but is it safe, since you may thing is he/she a creepy stalker person?


Currently, you can't put your state, county, place as search criteria, and can't create account, seems haven't many people using it.


This site claims that it's a dating site, and it allows people under 18, even has an age range between 3 and 12!


This chat site has a App in Google Chrome store.


This chat site is totally anonymous, no registering needed, everyone under a mask.


If you need video chat, and don't want to register, AV by Aim (beta) is a good place. "Fun, easy video chat for up to four people — no account required!"


AV support video conference, but currently you can only invite up to 3 people to video chat.


AV build up on Adobe Flash technology, use Flash Player. So just click the big button "Start Video chat", and click the allow radio button in the Adobe Flash Player Setting, then click close button. Then a link and yourself will show up. Just send your friends this magical link, or publish on a forum or Facebook or Twitter.


Not like Vuala that find a toddler to chat with , AV require that you must be 13 years of age or older.


if someone you don't want to interact with enters the chat, as the creator of the chat, you can always remove another user by clicking the red X in the upper right hand corner of their AV box. You can also simply leave the chat and create a new one with the people you want in it.


There is a "Report Abuse" feature, but I wonder how the abuser get disciplined.


The video chat cannot be recorded, however third-party screen capture software could be installed and used to record your video chat.


Get rid of register, and totally go anonymous seems a trend.

      I still think the old fashioned registration works, whether people like it or not, but Vuala's business model is interestin since people don't have to register. I may try this. Thanks for the information.
