Skype 7.5.0.101 for Windows Desktop

It has recently become available for download a new version of Skype for Windows Desktop. Unfortunately, it is not known exactly what changes have been made in the new version, but the official forum said that version 7.5 will use less memory.

Personally, I did not notice that, I would say a bit quite the contrary (by adding a couple of megabytes, however, is not an indicator). There also seems was accelerated the launch of Skype — now it is starting to ~1.2 second faster. Also, the installation file has become "lighter" to 2.2 MB.

But the main notable change in Skype 7.5.0.101 for Windows Desktop, is that the developers have removed ads from the right pane. I did not know if the change affects users from around the world, but that’s a good move.
