I don't know how relavent it is, but I know that there is a fair bit of 
commercial implemened shared browsing for the purpose of 
teaching/troubleshooting with remote users.


you are trying to use an online banking application and run into a 
problem. you can call the banks support number and they have you go to a 
different URL that acts as a man-in-the-middle proxy, providing the same 
display to both you and the callcenter person you are on the phone with. 
you go through and show where you have problems and the callcenter person 
provides guidence and assistance (the better implementations have the 
ability to require that you enter your password and the callcenter person 
doesn't have any way of seeing it)
