no, you don't.
Skype is a self contained unit, thus, no need for Chrome.

because, you ignoramus, every cotton pickin' time, there's an
announcement telling us of improvements to Skype, and it is
posted on this list, you are the only one that arks up and
pulls out the same old argument time and time again, how it
will never be good because it is already worse and how they
need to do one thing or another to improve it. or, better yet,
bring back something that's clearly been put to bed, and was
considered being put to bed many years before you even had an
inkling of it being so. those of us that watch trends and the
like, knew that the minute MSN Messenger was shut down, Skype
was going to be the way of things. moreover, we also knew that
the interface, such as it was, which was an interface that
hadn't changed overly much for the better part of ten years, I
might add, was very likely to be done away with and something
either newer or better or even, god forbid, both, was going to
take its place. A few of us knew, even back when Messenger
went the way of the dodo bird, that change was on the cards.
and when MS bought Skype and sounded the deathnel for
Messenger, we knew even then, that Skype was going to become
their flagship Messenger service.
Really, you are the minority, because you are the only one
bitching, pissing and moaning about the unfairness of it all
and how you have to exert 100% more effort. Christ, it must be
so hard to press a key on that keyboard, it's got to be a
strain on the brain and the hands to do that I'm sure.
Really, It's been said before by myself, and by others on
this list, so it's not our fault if you choose to ignore
what's right in front of you.
either get with it, or don't let the door hit ya where the
good lord split ya.

Sarah, I asked you some time
ago, but I haven't got any answer from you.
Do you accept only positive
remarks about Skype on this list?
Do you like only the remarks
that are the same as yours?
You say that "we are starting to not like it". Can you please
tell me who are those "we"?
Were there votes made among all
members of the list and you observed that all list members
don't like my messages?
And btw, is there a rule of this list
that tells that if a certain number of members don't like
the opinions of other list members, those other list
members should not send those messages? Or something like
I didn't send messages with swears,
and I didn't send strong messages against other list
members, but yes, a list member sent that kind of messages
for me just because he didn't like my opinion.
You said that I sound like a broken
record just because I told my opinion for more times about
the Skype version I like and the one that I don't like.
But what about the other people that expressed their
opinion but their opinion was different? They don't sound
like a broken record only because their opinion matches
yours, or why they are OK but I am not?

Then sit down, write your feedback to skype directly
and not here. We have already heard it. If you you
don't like it there is always zoom or the delete key.
You tend to sound like a broken record and we are
starting to not like it. You in this case and on this
list are the minority as you are I hink the only one
who is hating skype and its new ways. Either get used
to it, get left behind, or leave. I'm speaking as a
list member, not a mod.

Yes you are right.
We are a minority and we will always be
disadvantaged because of this. This is what I am
saying. But this doesn't mean that we shouldn't
say this just because we can't change it.
Nothing will be
changed in our favour if we all would continue
to pretend that it is all right when it is not
all right for all of us.

that's not my point at all. in fact, you know
what? forget it.
I'm done. Time and Time again, people have
given you solutions and whatnot and other
feedback to help you improve your efficiency
with Skype, and you still complain that it is
worse than what you had. build a bridge, get
over it, The new Skype is here to stay, and no
amount of belly aching on your part nor anybody
else's will extend the life of Skype Classic.
Microsoft have put it to bed, and rightly so.
We, whether you like to admit it or not, are a
minority, and we do not affect a major
corperation's bottom line as much as we'd all
wish we could, save for those to whom products
are specifically designed and marketed towards
Whenever I see an email from you regarding
Skype, it is a never ending litany of charges
against it's ease of use, that it's worse than
what you had, it's less accessible, it's less
efficient, it's this, it's that, or it's the
That is why I say you should expend that energy
you put in to thinking up and cmposing that
litany of charges, in to learning Skype or
whatever varients thereof, and actually be
constructive and positive, instead of negative
We've heard every single complaint you've
raised before, and reitterating them here, is
not going to change what currently is. If you
feel that strongly about it, contact the MS
Disability Access Desk and kindly present them
with your arguments.

I already told you that
this is not true. I put a lot of efforts in
learning to use Windows 7, and I use it
every day in the last years, but I still
consider it worse and less accessible than
After I will learn to
use Skype 8 I will be able to use it very
well, but that "very well" would still be
worse than using Skype 7 for me.
Don't think that all the
people use the applications the same way you

so do I, on both platforms, windows and
mac. IOS and android, well, that's a whole
other ballgame, but, it's certainly better
than it ever was.
Octavien, if you put as much energy in to
learning the new skype as you do complaining
about it, you'd have nothing to complain

improvement is good, but these
are small improvements while
bigger issues will never be
biggest issue: Skype 8 uses a
issue might be worked around if
the scripts will turn the
virtual buffer off automaticly

best news is that for the moment
Skype 7 still works. Too bad
that it will probably stop
