    You know the situation - you're in the same room with someone, both on your Macs, and find something interesting. "Check this out!" you say, wanting to share it.

    1) You could turn your screen their way to show them (a bit unwieldy with an iMac)

    2) They could walk over to take a look or you could take your laptop to them (if it's really worth it)

    3) You could send them a link or Droplr URL through Skype, Facetime or some other chat client (if both of you happen to actually use such things)

    ...but what you really want is to do this with a bit of that famous Apple magic and "flick" a web browser page or an image to their desktop for viewing in Quick Look - like you were handing them a piece of paper. Think of Teleport (the app), except you're not taking over their computer with your mouse and keyboard. Kind of like Airdrop, but not so slow to initialize.

    Is there an app for that?

    nice idea.

    what my GF & i do:
    i'd drag the address bar to my desktop, making a file that is that link.
    then i airdrop it to her.

    not as cool as your idea, but easy enough.

    if there's anything active on the web page, ie a video, links, etc...a screenshot won't be of much use...
    (just saying...) :)

    Never really been in the situation you describe, but you seem to have found a niche idea that you should get someone to pick up on - would be super handy in an office or school workplace.
