Glance 2.8 Review
The web conferencing tool is most appropriate for ad hoc meetings and offers only a small range of functions. The host can essentially present his desktop as well as hand over mouse and keyboard control to his attendees enabling them to control his screen. Features that allow interaction between participants, such as chat, polls, whiteboards, or tools for marking documents and desktop items are not included in the online conferencing software.
Participants can attend online meetings through their browser. No download, plug-in, Java or Flash is needed. Joining the meeting this way limits the participants and does not allow them to share their screen.
Bottom line: The program provides easy access to desktop sharing. The pricing is comparable to the top tools, which is not even nearly justified by Glance's functionalities.
Host using Windows XP or later or Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher. Participate using the supported browsers Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari or Opera. No Flash or Java required
