As most of you loyal readers know, this blog is working in conjunction with Brosix in order to bring quality information and resources to those looking for information on hosted and secure instant messaging. Today,Brosix announced on its blog that the Brosix 3 BETA version has been released, with downloads available for Windows and Linux. I know that the Brosix developers are working hard on creating a version for Mac OS, and I’m sure that is next up on their list of important To-Dos.
While the Brosix 3 version doesn’t have ALL the features of the previous versions, the developers are working hard to ensure that the most important features for users are still successful in this new version. Here is a run down of the currentBrosix 3 features, as stated in a previous blog post-
“We have tried to select the most important features for Brosix 3:
* Text Chat
* Text Conference
* History – compared to Brosix 2.0 this contains information about all communication events, not only text chat which is the case with Brosix 2.0
* File Transfer
* Co-Browse – this uses improved and more user-friendly process.
These are some of the most-used featured among Brosix users. Some of the features not included in this new version are:
* Screen Sharing
* Audio call
* Video call
* Voice Conference
* Voice Mail
These features are currently being re-designed with a efficient and more effective user experience in mind. To download and try the new version of Brosix 3 BETA, try: http://www.brosix.org/beta.shtml
