Phone Calls In Your Browser -


PC calling just got a lot easier because now you can make and receive calls using just your web browser. Open your browser and go to and you're ready to call.

GizmoCall works on ALL computers (Mac/Win/Lin) even the tiny new netbooks. It's the ideal calling solution when you don't have time or can't download, install or configure big bulky PC software which can slow down your computer.

You can call millions of other computers for free or buy calling credits and make affordable calls to any telephone in the world. It's an ideal solution for the budget minded person who wants to make calls (and receive calls!) from any computer. Give GizmoCall a try and read the FAQ for how you can make phone numbers on pages trigger a call (example:

GizmoCall is part of the trend away from desktop software towards services in the browser which are fashionably called the Cloud services. The era of desktop software is quickly coming to an end and being replaced by web applications which are accessible from anywhere, load fast and ultimately have more features because they can be tied into the network more easily. Here's a list of some such services:

Migration to Web Based Services
Function Old School Desktop New School Web Service
Calendar Outlook ScheduleWorld, Google Calendar
Calling Skype, Gizmo5 GizmoCall
Email Eudora, Outlook Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, Gmail
Image Editing Photoshop Photoshop Express
Instant Messaging AIM Meebo, RadiusIM, Giz5 (mobile phones)
Music MusicMatch, itunes MP3tunes, Lala
Office (Docs, Spreadsheets, Presentations) Microsoft Office Google Apps, Zoho
Personal Finance Quicken Buxfer, Mint
Photo Touchup and Organizing Microsoft Photo, iPhoto Picnik, Flickr

I hope you'll give GizmoCall a try and let me know how it works for you. If you're a developer and would like to add web calling to your application please visit
