With Firefox 76, is the only new thing with Zoom the fact that you can join a meeting? Do you still need Zoom desktop program to start a meeting or to send msg?

Firefox 76 released yesterday, Tuesday May 5 2020.

Release notes https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/76.0/releasenotes/ say

Firefox now supports Audio Worklets that will allow more complex audio processing like VR and gaming on the web; and is being adopted by some of your favorite software programs.

With this change, you can now join Zoom calls on Firefox without the need for any additional downloads. --- end of quote ---

But do you still need "additional downloads" (e.g. Zoom desktop program) to do things other than "join Zoom calls on Firefox"? For example:

  1. Create a meeting
  2. Send a message to a Zoom contact
  3. Start a meeting
  4. Move people from waiting room to the Zoom room

Yes you'd still need to download the Zoom application to do the other things you mentioned. It simply means you can join zoom meetings on your own as a participant without needing to download it
