ChromeSkype

Native style Skype packaged as a Chrome app! PromoImage

About

ChromeSkype was created as a platform-independent alternative to the desktop Skype client. It comes as an easy to install Chrome extension and works out of the box. It's really just a wrapper around Skype Web.

Features

  • Notification support (using the Chrome API)
  • Runs in background invisibly (even while Chrome is closed!)
  • Instant startup
  • Resizable native window
  • Uses the familiar Skype Web interface
  • Lightweight (~100mb of RAM usage)

Installation

From the Chrome Web Store (recommended method):

ChromeWebStoreButton

From Source (for the pros):

  1. Git clone the repo with: git clone https://github.com/null-dev/ChromeSkype
  2. Open the Chrome "extensions" page by copying and pasting this into the navigation bar: chrome://extensions/
  3. Drag the folder that was created in step 1 from the git clone onto the extensions page (or click "Load unpacked extension..." at the top of the page and browse to the cloned folder)
