Zoho meeting - now a public meeting Tuesday, June 19, 2007
Some while ago, I was invited to participate in the private beta of Zoho Meeting and blogged at the time, how great I thought it was (free web conferencing that was easy to use)
Well, it's finally being made open to everyone to use from today.
This video demo: <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXPrIwGPHsY> by Zoho's Raju Vegesna provides a brief overview of the app.
Only the organiser needs to install any software to operate a web conference; everyone else uses the browser to view the "show". All the organiser has to do is send an email invite which contains a web link personal to the invitee.
I've used it a number of times and have yet to hit any problems with corporate firewalls preventing viewing.
I'd used Vyew (http://www.vyew.com) previously for web conferencing but, so far, I've found Zoho easier/faster to use for impromptu sessions..
Working alongside apps such as skype (audio) or traditional phone conferencing, or userplane & heycosmo (video conferencing), it makes virtual meetings really easy. And FREE.

Many thanks for covering Zoho Meeting.
We are working on integrating with Skype. We will also provide audio conferencing soon..
