Gizmo uses your Internet connection (broadband or dial-up) to make calls to other computers. With the click of a mouse, you're connected to friends, family, and colleagues anywhere on earth. It's just that simple. You talk clearly for as long as you want for free.

With inexpensive add-ons like Call In and Call Out, you can talk to any telephone, mobile or landline on the planet.

U used to like Gizmo, it was a decent alternative to Skype. Credit purchased thru gizmo lasts forever, wheras Skype's didn't (don't know if that's still the case?)
Call quality used to be excellent. But Skype's has improved no end of late.
Sadly the big let down is:
The interface: just terrible, confusing and irregular - somewhere in there are my IM contacts, but hard to tell where or what they are
As previously mentioned. The auto spamming of my IM clients telling them I'm using Gizmo (not good, not good at all - just don't do that!)
Also on the downside. I think Skype has upped it's game a lot of late, and I think, got a million times better than it was.
For the record Openwengo has changed it's name to Qutecom
http://www.qutecom.org/
but it's absolutely terrible at present. very very buggy.
If you want free voice /VOIP I'd stick with any of these:
Google Talk
WIndows Live Messenger
Skype
I really wouldn't bother witih gizmo anymore.
Sadly!

This was the worst on-line shopping experience I've ever had till date. I bought a $35 DID number with Gizmo5 through google checkout. There was a delay of almost 24h until the number finally show up on my gizmo account page and when it finally does, it doesn't work at all. There is no customer support number for gizmo5 or any direct email addresses - the only contact platform with the company is through an online form on the website. After contacted they tell me that they acquire this numbers from different vendors and were contacting the one in question to find out what the problem was. One day later i am told that the number was erroneously posted as available on the website but that they would offer me a replacement. I accepted their proposed number but after that I hear nothing else from them until 3 days later - in spite of my repeated attempts to contact the company - when they tell me that the replacement number is no longer available!!! They then offer me yet a different replacement number, this time from a completely different area code and far inferior to the one purchased initially - and on the condition of having to pay an additional 100% of what i had already originally paid. I have since been writhing to them demanding either an equivalent replacement number or a refund and have no answer at all. In the meanwhile the original number was taken out of my account page and no refund offered.
This people are a very bad joke, stay well back!!

This is not really a review, but provides some helpful info on other ratings. First, I am one of the developers for Gizmo Project, which has been rebranded as Gizmo5.
Version 4.0.0.338 is our first official release with video and IM gateways. Any reviews of 4.0 prior to 338 were done as beta releases. There have been significant improvements in stability since those betas. I invite all users of Gizmo Project/Gizmo5 beta to upgrade to version 338 and write a new review.
FYI, we are planning a maintenance release for next week which will fix a few more minor issues.

What a relief to be done with Skype/ebay/ Paypal et.al. I find Gizmo's quality better, the interface more pleasing, the functionality superior and the customer service worse....but hopefully there won't be much need for them. The Gizmo Project is like the iphone of virtual phones. I was reluctant to give up my Skyplein after two plus years but am now pleased I did.

I'm going to give it a 3 because of their tech support.
All I've wanted to do for the past 6 months is ONE thing: Use my gizmo account with native Windows Mobile 6 VoIP. I've got it 99.9% working - only problem is that is very hard to hear the person I'm talking too - and I'm pretty sure that's a problem with the codec I'm using.
If anyone out here (or Gizmo developers - you giys reading this) has a clue for me that would be great!

johnmcneely reviewed v4.0.0.325 on Dec 24, 2007

I switched from Skype to Gizmo (which I had tried and abandoned about 2 years ago) to see if it had improved. It had!! A lot!! Skype's Call-in number had gotten to $60 per year and although their outbound service could be purchased at a flat rate (when I did it the cost was $19.95, now I think it's up to $29.95) I really wanted a standards-based connection (SIP). I hope for everyone's sake that Gizmo is able to resists going to a flat-rate-based outbound service and here is why: Network capacity and maintenance costs are not flat rate, they are also variable based upon usage. Any carrier, VoIP or otherwise that uses a pricing model that is radically different than their cost structure ends up with a disincentive to invest in infrastructure to grow capacity and maintain performance, which ultimately is bad for the consumer, because the rates will have to change or the service will probably not be or stay good. I used to run Gizmo on my PC (still do but for a different account). But for my home phone service, I use an ATA (Analog Telephone Adapter) in my case the Grandstream HT-286 (about $40) and hooked it up to the inside phone wiring in my home (unplugged the local Telco outside at their connection point) abd the Ethernet side of the ATA to my DSL modem, so I run my home phones completely on Gizmo (no need to keep a PC on 24/7). I don't use it much because I have a cellphone, but it is great to have the capability. I just have to remember to dial a full 10-digit number to reach my 911 center rather than 911 that Gizmo won't process.

igoldsmid reviewed v4.0.0.324 on Nov 29, 2007

Gizmo 4 is rubbish - and the support is non almost existent. I purchased $25.00 of their call out service about a year ago. Since version 4 as soon as Gizmo loads it crashes - can't ever get it to run now. And the money remaining on my account is effectively frozen. Can't get any response from their tech support about this. Why anyone now would want to choose this instead of SKYPE or any of several others that works properly - is beyond me..
Absolute thumbs down.

I never had a Problem with the version 3 series of Gizmo Project but I have yet to be able to connect with a version 4 build yet without a complete crash of the program. I also really wish they would stop installing an outdated version of Apple's Bonjour service over my up-to-date copy as well as stop installing Bonjour to the gizmo directory where other apps (such as pidgin) won't find it or won't work with it properly.

great idea, bit more open and cheaper than Skype.
on the downside. buggy
I have days when I can't log in, when my credit doesn't show up, when it crashes for no reason, when it won't exit without going to taskmananger.
There is also this strange delay and echo that I get with Gizmo when dialing a landline that i don't get with Wengo Phone or Skype - or at least, not as much. So I'd have to say the call quality isn't as good as skype or Wengo Phone.
Overall I prefer Wengo Phone (although it is a bit French-centric)

Skype also installs the bonjour service, as does iTunes and many other sofware titles. Its not there to spy on you or bring down your buzz, its a network discovery system allowing people behind the same firewall to contact eachother without needing the remote (skype, gizmo etc...) server to do it for them.
I like gizmo project alot but. Its almost where it needs to be to challenge skype.

This has got a lot of promise but it's still very US-centric.. i.e. cost of calls is still too expensive (around 1.5p per minute in the UK). I can get cheaper (i.e. free national calls) here on my landline. and with the call-in feature it's still PC dependent (of course it's VOIP!). so I think it's usefulness is still limited outside of the US?

This has MUCH better quality than Skype.
My problem with Skype is that it uses P2P techniques, which mean that you share your bandwidth. Your machine can become a 'server' node on the Skype network without your permission.
Gizmo (and other true VoIP clients) just make calls and they are much clearer as well.
I'll stick with this for now.

My beef with Skype is that it's proprietary. Of course, with Skype's PSTN gateway being totally free for the rest of 2006, the proprietary product may grab enough market share to become a defacto standard. I agree that Gizmo should have posted a changelog with this release. As it stands, it's hard to tell that it's really a beta. Go to the Gizmo site to get the current stable release (which does have a changelog).

Sk-Yikes! is no better than Gizmo, if you're talking about free services. But if you put up your good money, I can give you a dozen reasons to leave Skype for another service. Are you a paying Skype customer? If not, then you cannot begin to imagine the problems and utter lack of customer/service support many [most?] *paying* Sk-Yikes! customers experience.
For free, Sk-Yikes! is great. However, after one month of being a paying Sk-Yikes! customer, I now run to *any* other VOIP. (And, I now call it Sk-Yikes! b/c of my mostly unpleasant experiences.)The bottom line: Be certain we are comparing equivalent services/products--free vs. fee-based. There is a *HUGE* difference between the two, and Sk-Yikes! fall far short with the latter.

In correction to faxmaster, according to the Gizmo knowledge base, Gizmo does use encryption.
This product is good, but so far I see no reason to leave Skype for it. I always appreciate the implementation of open standards, but right now I don't find Skype's technologies are inhibiting my usage at all. On the other hand, the Skype application runs more smoothly for me with fewer quirks.
I would love to see this product evolve to the next level, but as of today they still have more work to do before it becomes my phone app.

Gizmo Project works well at placing phone calls with good to excellent voice quality (not as consistant as Skype) and is easy to use. However, the interface is somewhat 'clunky' and there is no ability to send/receive text messages. Calls are not encrypted. One neat little feature is the 'map to,' which shows where the other party is calling on based on an IP lookup.

It's rather skypish, if that helps. I have no issues with it. Voice quality is about the same as skype, gave it a 4 because it's a little clunky in use. Otherwise, if you've used skype, this isn't a far departure.

Mozilla recently updated its product roadmap through 2010. According to the first draft, the current browser will see a minor update in Q4 2009 as well as Q2 2010. Version 4.0 is headed for an October or November 2010 release and will bring a new user interface and browser sync integration.
The current release schedule is just in draft status, which means we have to take it with a grain of salt. But the guys over at Mozilla are surely busy getting two new versions of Firefox out by mid 2010 and apparently a completely new browser by the end of 2010.
The current 3.5x version will be updated with version 3.6, code-named Namoroka and currently available as alpha 1 release. The software will have a slightly faster Javascript engine than version 3.5, a faster startup time and will update the Gecko layout engine from version 1.9.1 to 1.9.2. Mozilla also promises Windows 7 integration light weight themes called Personas, as well as an improved form completion feature called awsomeformcomplete.
Perhaps most interestingly, version 3.6 will debut with Fennec 1.0, the mobile version of Firefox, which will also be use the Tracemonkey Javascript engine.
The draft roadmap suggests that Firefox 3.7 will follow in Q1 or Q2 of next year, bringing and updated fennec v1.1 browser, a Gecko engine that is updated to version 1.9.3, support for XUL animations, task-oriented browsing, out-of-process plug-ins for more software stability, online bookmark synchronization, as well as further Tracemonkey and pageload enhancements. We will be especially looking forward to a transition in the way websites are handled by Firefox – version 3.7 will run websites as an application. Mozilla recently released Firefox 3.7 as a pre-alpha 1 version to developers.
It appears that Firefox 4.0 may debut in October or November of next year, if we believe the current draft roadmap. There is not much information what this next major update of the browser will bring, but the roadmap surprisingly indicates yet another small update for Gecko (to version 1.9.4) as opposed to the big step to the new generation v2. Mozilla said that Firefox 4 will treat content and chrome in separate processes, integrate the cloud feature Weave, which will synchronize user data, and offer more Tracemonkey enhancements.
And, Firefox 4 is designed with a new user interface for all platforms and will debut in concert with Fennec 2. There is not much information on how this new user interface will look like, but first mockups that have been posted on Mozilla’s website suggest that the Mozilla team favors a Google Chrome like design that integrates Windows 7 graphics features. Overall, window elements seem to be floating over the background. In any case, the days of the good old main menu bar with the File/Edit/View/History/Bookmarks/Tools/Help items seem to be counted. But then, the mockups aren’t final and Mozilla says it is simply exploring new designs at this point in time.
