At first, Mozilla Firefox was a cool web browser that could top Microsoft Internet Explorer, provide a more efficient way to go on the Web. Since then, the browser evolves, turns to be the perfect companion for social network die-hard lovers.
And since the beginning of this year, softphone companies are starting to catch the hype. Most probably for buzz marketing cheap launching campaign purposes. The French OpenWengo has done it. Jajah has done it. Abbeynet Labs is the next softphone company to do it.
Abbeynet’s Firefox extension takes away the non-regretted pain to download/install a new software. That’s its main advantage. Besides it, the extension pours in the usual VoIP functionalities that a caller could expect: One-click call feature to dial a number found a web page; Contact lists; Web-presence. SMS sending is also allowed.
The SIP-based softphone is a Italian newborn voice client, released just in last May. Abbeynet targets portals, ISP and telcos, supplying its application mostly in ASP (Application Service Provider) mode ― the invisible part of the business for customers. And its business model heavily is relied on revenue sharing strategy.
