Skype is a freeware application, something like an instant messaging software, but it is able to make calls and video conferences online with other skype users, I have been using Skype for some time now and all I can say that it is stable, I did not have problems with it, it is very easy and comfortable to talk with your friends, I changed irc for skype to talk with my friends and left irc for talking in support channels, like #phphelp,#mysql on different servers, but of course I chat on IRC too, but usually nonsense, of course irc has it own advantages, skype has others. Skype use’es http protocol and https, that is why it is fast, because a lot of people has fast connection for this protocol, the file downloads and uploads are fast, not like on dcc or msn, jabber, yahoo, aol, etc.

Skype is available for different Operating Systems like Windows, Linux, Mac-OS and Pocket PC.. it has lots of users online and a fast search engine for searching for your friends.. usually there are 4-2 millions users online and no ads, of course it offers paid features, but you might not use it if you don’t need them. As I said, it is comfortable to use, when you work the notifications just help you to chat and do not forget about someone when working with your computer, I usually forget that I am talking on some IRC channel or private, besides Skype has no Spam and no viruses and stuff. ;)

Skype is a little program for making free calls over the internet to anyone else who also has Skype. It’s free and easy to download and use, and works with most computers.

You can know more about Skype and download it at Skype dot com
