Simples Skype Chat Style



Simples is a very nice chat style for Skype. It is heavily influenced by the Renkoo style for Adium.

It utilises some of webkits new CSS3 which should make adding or changing any colour styles very easy. Fade-in effects are also provided by webkits CSS animation framework.
