Description

Project Tox, or Tox as we're often called is a free and open source replacement to the well used proprietary application Skype. Unlike Skype, Tox focuses on both security and privacy, utilizing a distributed hash table and onion routing mechanism to create an infrastructure without an infrastructure, all while maintaining fluid voice, video, and text chats. Unlike our competitors, Tox focuses on doing things like encryption transparently, removing the idea of a learning curve, to help design something that even Grandma could use.
