Alternatives to Skype

After doing some research, and reading what few relevant opinions this thread produced, it looks like Jitsi is the best alternative to try first. :)

If it turns out to be a disaster I'll let you guys know. :P

I've had this issue before.

I just gave up on it except from using mumble a few times.

Hopefully tox will change it.

You might want to try Talky. It works in-browser, requires no plug-ins, and is free software.

It probably requires WebRTC support in browser, which you'd have to look into, if your browser supports that or not, or the right version of it.

While the concept of Talky is interesting, I really don't trust browser vendors with that responsibility. Can you imagine the security holes this is going to introduce? Holy fucking Christ. Your browser sharing your screen with a Web site! That's insane. Software is buggy. This will not be stable and secure for 20 years. From day one they need to make sure that this requires a per-page or per-domain prompt. It doesn't sound like they're going to do that. I weep for our technological future.

I'd only use Talky under the assumption that I'm being watched.

I generally assume I'm being watched.

It's not me! I swear! Honest!
