Scatter is a chrome extension that allows users to access the EOS mainnet. Scatter can be compared to the metamask for Ethereum. Similarly it works as a web browser and allows users to generate EOS Public and Private Keys as well as create identities that can be paired to their EOS accounts.
Scatter allows two way communication between authorized applications allowing them to use your Scatter to sign digital signatures for the blockchain and authenticate with your Identities.
They have also recently released a desktop application in its (Beta) stage. This will add an extra level of security as no application will be able to reach your Scatter without your explicit consent allowing users to control who gets access to their Scatter.
