VoIP for Linux and Mac users

For all you VoIP lovin’ Mac-usin’ dudes out there (that means you, Phoneboy!) the folks at AbbeyNet have just released Firefox VoIP plug-ins for MacOS, and Linux.  More information is available at Luca Filigheddu’s site.  You’ll have to check them out for yourselves though, since I have neither a Mac nor a PC running Linux at hand.

    This may not be revelant but i figured i'd post this anyway. If you're using ubuntu 8.10 you may be in for some issues with the network manager. For some unknown reason it stops functioning. You will need to manually set you're resolv.conf with your ISP's DNS servers. That file is located in /etc/network/resolv.conf

    I checked out that Abbey VOIP plug-in for the Apple OSX version of FireFox – Quite interesting — But at the same time rather an odd experience: The majority of the world only really gets handheld hardware and cell phones. VOIP is a rapidly growing niche for the more geeky and cheap and adventurous crowd – and Mac VO-IP handsets and solutions are growing. But taking the idea of 'making a phone call' INSIDE of my web-browser is even strange for me! It's just so far removed from the traditional notion of making a call.
