It's like AOL Instant Messenger in a way, but you call people over they're internet connection rather than their phone line. It's tough to explain, but give it a shot, me and THE ALMIGHTY ENOS SHENK have been using it for about an hour now so come check it out.

Programs like AIM and MSN's voice chats arent as good as this. The voice chats on them connect to a server, and this uses your internet connection. No lag, and almost no delay between talking people. It's cool.

Is it like AIM, does it launch at start up, give me pop ups, cookies?

Or does it work like Teamspeak/Ventrillo?
