Skype for Windows

Today the Skype developers are pleased to provide the new version of their product! Skype 5.11 for Windows has two major changes. The first of them let you use Facebook and Microsoft accounts to sign in without any additional registration. This is good news for those who still have no Skype account, because you no longer need to make it by hand!

The second change applies to the graphical part of Skype for Windows: its design and icon became more flat. If you like how the Skype caption looks, the following news will make you upset: the developers have removed the special visual style (caption and border), there is no more “Visual style of the window” option. In other words, Skype is forced to use the default Windows theme now. Well, seems that the “newfangled minimalism” left Skype no choice. And that's right: when the world is moving forward, why it should stand still?
