Hi guys,

One of the things that I am seeing is the lack of support in websites.

WebRTC works great on a webpage, but not in websites. This means that it
makes perfect sense to use it in SPAs (single page application), but if I
want to embed it into a website (an ecommerce one for example) - it is far
from easy - the moment the user leaves the page in favor of another one -
the call drops.
This causes a lot of vendors offering click-to-call services that get
embedded into websites to open up the video/audio session in a separate
browser window, which then doesn't float around. The experience you get is
broken due to that.

Fixing this by having a way for the service to express the fact that it
wishes to maintain WebRTC sessions across web pages within the same domain
- or in any other way - will imrpove usability.

On a similar note, it would be nice to be able to float the video on top of
the screen - not the browser window, but the whole desktop (and mobile).
This enables looking at things in parallel to the conference and still
having context or the ability to see the people you are talking to.

Call it my two cents...
