Re: Answers regarding Windows Skype

Hi Doug, can you just do a upgrade from Skype classic to Skype 8? If not, do
you have the download link to download, and install it?

Which browser you use or have installed will not affect Skype 8. Skype 8 is
an Electron app, and Electron is basically web content in a Chrome control
that does not run inside an actual browser.

Many thanks for these infos Doug, I think they're useful for everyone.
Mostly I did not expect Skype 8.x to be compatible with Windows 10, I knew
it only worked with Windows 7 and 8.
Now a question for those who can help. Opening the link for the Skype 8
scripts, and the manual afterwards, I read this on the system requirements
"These scripts require JAWS 17.0 or greater. (JAWS versions prior to 17.0 do
not support web site specific scripts, and Skype 8 runs inside a Google
Chrome window.)"
I didn't install Google chrome in my desktop machine, I am running Firefox
instead. Will this cause any kind of problems when using Skype 8?
