Web Crossing, Inc. says that its eponymous software, Web Crossing, is available as a public beta version for Apple’s new Mac OS X. Web Crossing is an online conferencing server.
Web Crossing is developed around a scalable Internet/intranet server that offers threaded and linear discussions, integrated newsgroups and mailing lists, full e-mail services, secure communications, personal calendar, real-time chat and live event functionality. Each module of Web Crossing can be extended, as well.
Web Crossing is used by companies including CNN, The New York Times, Apple, Adobe and Autodesk.
Web Crossing founder and CEO Tim Lundeen says that Mac OS X and Web Crossing are a good fit — the OS showcases the power and scalability of the software, and the software is easy to use and configure, just like OS X.
“By the time we exit our beta test period, we also hope to be able to demonstrate some pretty exciting benchmarks,” said Lundeen.
A 30-day trial of the public beta is available for download.
