About 3 years and half ago in the web was born the first chatroulette: the original software/script made by a 17 years russian's guy.
After few months this casual video chat had a lot of access and become the best social chat in the 2010.
In those year the chatroulette's success is gone or this chat still the best software/script you can find in the web?
Well the original chatroulette now have more competitors than in the past: you can see yourself in this graphic how a new chat is becoming the first alternative of the original chatroulette:
Those statistic are took from Alexia one of best ranking method for see how much popular is a website.
As you can see chatroulette visit dropping from Jan 2010 to Jul 2010; after the big success is normal that a site can lose some popular: the new is new!
But the stats show us that those chatroulettes still popular also in 2011 and in the 2012; the big new, that those stats show us, is that a new chat alternative is becoming the most popular casual video chat: Omegle.
Omegle from 2010 still continue increase is popularity and in the 2012 did a boom of access: Omegle is becoming popular as Chatroulette.com.
As you can see in the graphic there are also other chat: Charandom, Bazoocam, Stickam
Those are all chatroulette's alternative but they didn't have big success: they stable and they not have increased a lot their popularity
Finlay we can say you that Chatroulette + Omegle + other alternative are not losing access: they continue increase the number of people use their software o they continue to have stable access during the years: Chatroulette then is not death and this particular chat still the best you can find in Internet for have fun with your web cam.
