Skype For Browsers

Microsoft is planning to launch a new Skype that can run on any Web browser.

Microsoft is reportedly working to bring Skype’s voice calling functionality to browsers without the need for a standalone client app. Four new job adverts appeared under the heading “Skype for Browsers” which call on software engineers in London and Prague with “real world experience developing HTML5 UI’s including rich interaction based on JavaScript.” Making Skype a web application would allow the tool’s features to function without necessarily having installed an application unique to each operating system. The project is a long way from reality, but if the project does use the WebRTC standard, it just might help speed up the development of better audio and video streaming tools for the web.
