Say, you are working and falling asleep at your desk. And everybody can be a witness of that. It is possible when your boss has installed a control-, security-, safety- or other kind of webcam. Visit the site of Opentopia for hundreds of streaming webcams all over the world.
And Google finds nearly everything, you know. In a special chapter (scroll down) you find dozens of search commands to use with Google, and you find thousands of sometimes very surprising webcams, anywhere. Often the owner wants you to see the view, in case of beautiful nature or a world famous touristic attraction, but sometimes the people you see are not aware at all that they can be viewed by anyone in the world!


The streaming webcams at this page are working with Firefox and Safari and maybe other browsers. They are not working with Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. My apologies! Try Firefox or something else. (Or do I have to download/plugin/submit something? If you know, please tell me)

For a start: Live streaming webcams (Camarades)
