Omegle: Chat With Strangers

We all love chatting. But sometimes, it gets a bit to boring to chat with the same bunch of people day in and day out. People on your chat list know what you are like and what you do, thus leaving out many possibilities of having an exciting chat.

To beat the monotony of chatting, here is a brand new website which enables you to chat with absolute strangers! Yes. The best part is that it saves you from all the login/registration processes and you don't even need to have a name/nickname! Chats are completely anonymous, although there is nothing to stop you from revealing personal details if you would like. Sounds cool, doesn't it? It is.

This addictive website is developed by Leif K-Brooks, an18 year old who is currently finishing his senior year of high school and plans to major in computer science. Launched on March 25, this unique website has grabbed the attention of thousands of users.

We spoke to a few "Strangers" about why they like this website and are hooked on to it. Most of them said it's so that they meet new people, learn about other countries and cultures and some just said "life is boring and this is a good way to have fun."

While there are chances you will end up chatting with some real weirdos, you will also eventually find sane people on the website.

Even tough trolls are currently the biggest problem faced by Omegle, Leif K-Brooks assures, "I consider this a very serious issue, and I'm working on methods of controlling it as much as possible."

The idea behind this site is a lot similar to that behind A Nice Chat, where one can meet new people, without having to register or submit any personal information.

Even though we love the website, we are still wondering the secret behind the name "Omegle".
You can start chatting on Omegle here.
