In this paper we present a new web application (Drag&Share) to share resources among different computers using the distributed user interfaces paradigm to easily share information for synchronous collaboration. It provides a shared workspace as an extension for the local system into the network, allowing users to communicate and to share documents in real time. The application works in an internet browser, without any plug-in. It does not need to be installed on the user’s system, and it is platform independent.
