Abbeynet Releases Firefox Extension

Just last week I had the opportunity to get a demo of the Abbeynet VOW platform.  It was impressive.  This morning, Abbeynet’s Luca Filigheddu dropped me a note to check out their new Firefox extension.  It looks great.  Able to operate autonomously, or drive the Abbeynet ActiveX softphone or toolbar, it lets you activate any phone number in any web page.  Any phone number, on any web page, is now click-to-call enabled.

Cool!

    Ahhh yes, a blast from way in the past. Cool! I patented this in 1999. :)

    But I wouldn't worry about it, I think Mitel has moved on to better things. But I do recall getting nice bonuses for doing these things :-)

    This is awesome. Aside from its main function, I love the integration aspect of it. That Gmail screenshot says it all. Now all I need to be released is the AllPeers p2p extension.

    The Skype for Internet Explorer/Firefox toolbar will Skype/SkypeOut-enable any phone number on any web page (and distinguish between Canada and the U.S. for "+1" country code). Just click on the number and Skype goes to work.
