Which to choose?

This depends on your audience, size and whether they are more familiar or complete strangers.  The more popular options may not have as many features but may be more comfortable for people to sign up.  Test, test, test.  There is more to a successful webinar than the software.  Be sure to check the the speed of your Internet. 

Do you have a preference or story?
