Haxial NetFone is an encrypted multi-user Internet telephone. ie it lets
you talk (literally, without typing), to 1 or more people over the
Internet. You can talk to multiple people at the same time, and your
security and privacy is protected by encryption.

Unfortunately, internet telephones are not as simple and easy to use as
real physical telephones. However, internet telephones offer some other
compelling advantages:

* You can make long distance or international calls for free. You only
pay for your normal internet access, and then any calls you make with
NetFone are free, even if you talk to someone on the other side of the
world for 10 hours. You can save a lot of money this way.
* You can have multi-way conversations with NetFone, also known as
"Conference Calls". In other words, you can talk to multiple people at
once and have a group discussion, instead of only one-to-one.
* NetFone encrypts your conversations for security and privacy. People
will not be able to eavesdrop on your conversations (provided you choose
good passwords).
* You can use NetFone during an internet game, which would be
impractical with a normal telephone.
* NetFone gives you lots of options to tweak the performance of the
call. While this can be seen as a disadvantage (complications), it is
also advantageous because it allows you to squeeze the best performance
out of your internet connection.

Note that Haxial NetFone talks only with other copies of Haxial NetFone
-- ie it does not call a real physical telephone. NetFone is
cross-platform, meaning that the Mac version can speak to the MS Windows
version, or vice-versa.

Haxial NetFone is available for:
MacOS 9 or better (with CarbonLib 1.3.1+).
MacOS X (10).
Windows 95 or better.
