Whether you call it an online meeting or a web conference, it's a new way for people to get together and share ideas. An online meeting puts you in the same virtual room with individuals across town or on the other side of the globe, requiring only a computer and an Internet connection. As travel costs rise and telecommuting becomes more common, online meetings are gaining popularity. It's also a critical tool for salespeople and creative professionals to make pitches and collaborate on ideas. Online meetings are being conducted with increasingly more sophisticated tools that allow participants to share their screens, transfer files, chat, annotate documents, and even collaborate directly on projects. We put a number of popular online meeting solutions to the test, comparing prices, features, and performance.
