All About JumpCut:

Because it's all based online, JumpCut is a very different kind of video editor. With JumpCut, you can do most of the things you'd do with traditional video editing software - rearrange clips, add titles and transitions etc. - but you also have the advantage of JumpCut's online community. You can share clips with others on JumpCut, or grab their video clips to use in your edited movie.

Jump Cut also offers features you'll see in online video sharing web sites - you can publish your movie on JumpCut, add tags, embed it on a blog, email it to a friend ...
