Chatroulette lets you set up your own profile as well as your personal settings.
One thing that is different from some of the others, is that they do make you sign up for an account, which is FREE granted that you do not wish to pay for their premium services.
Rating: 9/10 Pros: User friendly, great profile and settings options, easy to contact support if there is a problem or you encounter a rebel breaking the rules. Cons: To use certain features, such as sorting by gender, you have to pay a small fee.
Toss up: You have to sign up for an account to be able to connect with strangers, but it is easy and painless, and saves your settings and profile so you do not have to enter it each time. - Facebuzz is quick and to the point, a good option for random video chatting as well as text chatting.
Random webcam chat websites are all the rage these days.
With hundreds of them available within a quick search, it is hard to know which ones are actually worth getting into. - Omegle is the most obvious alternative to Chatroulette as it rivals in popularity, though it has not been on the web as long.
The point of these websites is to have a conversation with people who fit a certain criteria you are looking for, such as gender, common interests, or location, on either video, audio, text chat or any combination of the three. Omegle is completely anonymous, letting you choose entirely what you want to share with others.
It is all in good fun, but some of these websites have more pros than cons. It is a complete random selection, but does let you input interests if you are looking for somebody who shares traits in common.
Among that, Omegle also lets you connect to Facebook if you so wish to.
Omegle has gotten with the program in the sense that they have a moderated section (for ages 17 and under, or just for those who want good, clean fun), and an unmoderated section where it is inevitable that you will run into chatters who are nude and/or performing sexual acts.
Rating: 9/10 Pros: Lightening fast when being connected with a stranger, no wait time. Has alternate sections for those who want clothes on, and those who want clothes off. Arguably the most populated random chat site out there. Cons: There is no real sorting involved, it is hit or miss on who you will end up chatting with. - Chatroulette is another popular random chat site.
It gets a lot of traffic and has had plenty of time to establish itself in the random chat world.
