It is now possible to make VoIP calls without having to use a traditional software client. This can be done via SIPphone’s Gizmo Project, a downloadable flash plug-in that enables users anywhere in the world to call most landline or mobile phones via any Internet browser.
Everyday, Gizmo users get five minutes of free calling but that could go up to 10 minutes if they register. But making additional calls, according to the company, require subscribers to buy Gizmo Call Out minutes in $10 increments.
Gizmo currently runs on Windows as well as Macintosh operating systems, and soon in Linux. It calls for the installation of Adobe Systems’ Flash 9 on the computer and is compatible with Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox and Safari browsers.
