Microsoft has launched a Web version of Skype, a plugin-free version of the voice and video calling platform, for all the popular browsers.
Skype for Web, which is still in beta, works with Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Microsoft's browser, Internet Explorer.
"Skype for Web makes it quicker and easier than ever before to connect with family and colleagues around the world, for free-directly from Skype.com," said Jonathan Watson, senior product marketing manager for user reach and engagement
In order to use the Skype for Web beta, you will need to download a plug-in before your first call, although Microsoft is working on removing this requirement at some point in the future. Being a beta, there are some issues present in this initial form. Known issues include increased battery consumption on OS X, as well as increased time to connect when placing an outgoing video call.
Invites for the beta will roll out over the next few months. Some new and existing Skype users are already receiving theirs. To check your invite status, simply sign in with your Skype account on the Skype website.
