Five web-based conferencing apps


AnyMeeting is a Java-based meeting space that supports up to 200 attendees.  The basic, free version is ad-supported and is limited on the features offered.  Paid versions remove the ads and add additional features.  AnyMeeting is PC and Mac compatible, but I would imagine Linux gurus can get it to work there as well.  Video conferencing is limited to 6 streams.  AnyMeeting has all of the standard features of a web conferencing app plus some additional ones like polling and a status indicator interestingly labeled “My Mood.”  This app even offers an integrated “ticket sales” module so you can charge admission to your webinars.
