How to join Zoom Meetings in a web browser?

Here’s a question from one of our readers:

To discuss test plans for our project, i have been asked to join a zoom meeting with another company. We thought of using Zoom on Chrome as i’ll be using it once a month. But, when we launch the meeting link in the browser, i am asked to install the software to use it. Is there a way that we can follow to avoid installing the software and use it in the web browser?
