Microsoft launches the Skype share button for websites

Earlier this month, Microsoft launched the "Share on Skype" button, which will help users to share interesting sites with their contacts. If the webmaster will add this button on his website, users no longer have to run Skype, copy the URL-address and send it to his friend. Now, just click on the "Share" button, which opens new browser window (if necessary, user will have to enter Skype login and password) where will be asked to select the contacts whom user want to send the link to this page.
