I was excited today to try out Gizmo Call. It puts the functionality of Skype or Gizmo Project software inside a browser. There is a plug-in that must be downloaded, but the process is faster and easier than downloading and installing the full application. I believe Gizmo Call is based on SIP, not sure if it is GPL. I am interested to see if this new shift in the model gets Incorporated into other applications or stays on its own. Interesting possibilities for students and another arrow in the web-based quiver.
