Google is strong, but I love it. I hate Microsoft. I have my reasons.

You not that chrome browser you use? How about those ads at the top of this website? How can it be avoided when even privately websites contain ads by them.

I agree with Charlie since Mircosoft took over Skype it hasn't been good at all. It was better before since all of the new updates have messed it up even more Smile

That is true, however, there is still no software that can match it Smile.

I have to agree with Brandon, as Skype is much more readily available than Google Talk is and one doesn't need to purchase it or program credit to use a webcam in a group call (well, not anymore).

Preciselly right, I know Facebook has it's video chat feature as well but it is still not the same and as easy to use and or set up. I would use Skype any day Smile.

I have used this program before and its not very good. So its better to have skype installed on one's computer.

Skype's like a replacement for their dead Microsoft Messenger... I don't see too much of a difference in functionality except that Skype allows calls by credit, which I think was developed before Microsoft bought it.

I'm sure that I mentioned this earlier, but Microsoft purchased Skype to compete with Apple and Google (I forgot when the actual purchase took place though). Unfortunately there's been a very noticeable downgrade in terms of program performance (and there are bothersome adds on it as well now) but its much more readily available than Google Talk and people don't have to buy Skype (I may be wrong about this though). Also, Microsoft terminated the MSN messenger program shortly after it purchased Skype.

No people do not have to buy Skype, however, you can buy/spend for things like Skype credit, your own (actual) phone number, your own voice mail, things of that nature, you do not have to buy the software. You can buy upgrades to make it better though.

I've also learned that each skype update fixes errors created by the previous upgrade but creates new ones. Mind you, this information comes to me as somewhat 2nd-hand so I have no clue if its true or not.
