I've been interacting with a few people courtesy of my webcam and it's a little frustrating to be unable to save the images that are shown when you're using Mozilla or some other browser.

Silver is a small gtk application which will download a remote image from a website and display it in a window - refreshing every few seconds.
It can be setup to view webcams which upload their captures to a website via ftp or something similar.
New in 1.1 you may specify the list of sites to view via the configuration file, either /etc/silverrc, or ~/.silverrc.
The GUI has been cleaned up a little bit and we'll soon have the ability to resize images on the fly ..
