    What gives? Is Google not working for you? :)

    https://webrtc.org/
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebRTC

    "WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) is a collection of communications protocols and application programming interfaces that enable real-time communication over peer-to-peer connections. This allows web browsers to not only request resources from backend servers, but also real-time information from browsers of other users."

    In other words, it's another way for sites to track you. To prevent WebRTC leakage in browsers, you can use this addon for Chrome, this addon for Firefox and this addon for Opera.

    Webrtc is just a technology used by browsers to communicate with each other. Generally used for video conferencing without any 3rd party software installation. Hope this helps. One more thing Safari doesn't have it yet.
