"Google's Gmail isn't just a mailbox -- it now doubles as a
phone. Users of Google's Web e-mail service can now call any phone
in the U.S. or Canada for free (and make international calls for
almost free) from within their browser.
"Google announced this feature in a blog post a few minutes ago.
It seems to be built off the voice and video chat feature Google
added two years ago, as it requires installing a new version of its
chat plug-in, available for Windows XP or newer, Mac OS X 10.4 or
newer and some versions of Linux."
