Re: [PLUG] An alternative to Zoom: Sangoma Meet

In addition to the obvious Chrome-based choices (Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Chromium), there's also Brave Browser, which I find quite nice.

There are also some familiar names like Vivaldi and Opera, and less known names like Blisk and Colibri.

Hating Google is no longer a reasonable reason to avoid Webkit browsers. There are plenty of others, though, if you're so inclined.

well, Meet works in Firefox, just... not as well. (Firefox doesn't
implement peer-to-peer WebRTC as well.)

but yes, just like Jitsi Meet, per their FAQ

Do I need special software to run Sangoma Meet?

On Desktop

    Sangoma Meet will run inside your browser.
    For the best experience ***we recommend using Google Chrome.***
    Other supported browsers: Microsoft Edge, Firefox.

note that Chromium should work just as well if you'd prefer a
less-Googled Chrome.
