If the internet is a gateway to the world, then webcams are the windows of the world - allowing you to glimpse the everyday happenings in the most remote locations, all from the comfort of your computer.
www.earthcam.com is a site that celebrates the webcam craze, gathering together links to some of the best and most interesting feeds the world over - all just a click or two away.
The site itself is relatively basic in design, laid out magazine style with various lists and sections clickable from the opening page.
But as most webcam feeds are found buried away in obscure sections of their host website, EarthCam does a great job of just placing them all within reach after just a click or two of your mouse.
Check out the Top 10 section, which apparently changes quite often. You will find street scenes and beach scenes, and even some small furry animals.
