Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you Americans (and those of you Americans actually in the US) were able to celebrate the holiday with your family and friends.
But Skype's Peter Parkes isn't an American, he's from the UK and he's reporting on the new (newest? latest?) Skype beta, 3.5
One commenter made an interesting observation:
I'm starting to feel a bit like I'd like a Lite version of Skype - chat & audio calls only - that installs no compulsory toolbar, plugins etc... In one year, Skype grew from more or less 6-7MB to a whopping 24MB
He's right. Skype has been bulking up, no doubt in response to the growing number of VOIP-ish service providers.
