Dead Simple Screen Sharing is a free browser based screen sharing service with useful features like audio conferencing, unlimited minutes, etc. You can use it to share either your entire screen or the screen of any specific application window which is currently opened on your PC. It lets you easily host unlimited screen sharing sessions and invite others to see your screen activities. The free version allows you to invite up to 10 participants per session.
To use this browser based screen sharing service, you would need to install its Chrome extension. Unlike the core screen sharing websites or software, this extension comes with an intuitive interface and is super easy to use. Apart from screen sharing, you can also have an audio conference with all the participants who joined the session. Another interesting feature is that there is no limit on the length of the screen sharing session (or audio conference).
Note: If you would like to use some additional features like session recording, 50 cloud storage, schedule sessions, etc., then you would need to upgrade to the paid version.

Once the screen sharing starts, you will be able to invite others to join the session. You can either send an invitation via email or copy the unique URL and share it anywhere you want.

To start audio conferencing, all you gotta do is click on the “Unmute Mic” button on the popup window which appears when you click the extension icon. The participants will also see this button on the webpage which will appear when they click on the invitation link. They would also need to enable this button if they want to participate in the audio chat.
