Mozilla phone

One of the things that has always annoyed me concerning those really nice VoIP interfaces for Outlook was that most of them are limited to Outlook. Because I normally use a number of operating systems, many of them non-Windows, my ears tend to perk up when something like AbbeyPhone comes along.

It appears to be a SIP-based plugin for Firefox and Thunderbird, capable of running on Windows, Mac, and Linux. It also isn't tied to any one service provider like so many other VoIP tools nowadays.

Sooo... It looks like I'll be playing with it in the near future, seeing how well it works with Linux. I'll keep you posted.
