You Don’t have to Download Zoom on a Laptop or Desktop if you Prefer to Use it in your Browser   

According to the website Tomsguide.com:

“You don't actually need to install anything to use Zoom on a desktop or laptop. All you need is a web browser.

When you get the invitation to join a Zoom meeting, click on the meeting URL. A new tab will open in your preferred browser, and if you have the desktop client app installed, the meeting will bounce over to the app.

However, if you don't have the desktop client software, then the Zoom browser window will ask you to download it. Ignore that suggestion and skip down to the fine print underneath: "If you cannot download or run the application, join from your browser."

Click the highlighted text in "join from your browser" and you'll be presented with a Zoom meeting page. Sign in with your name and join the meeting.”
