Publisher description for Skype Widget

Skype Widget program icon

In the past, we had to launch Skype messenger, and go through the same steps each time we wanted to call any phone number, or even start a voice conversation with any Skype user. Now Skype Widget will do these tasks with just one mouse click. The widget has a beautiful design that uses the same colors and theme as Skype. It provides one text input field, where you can type the Skype username or phone number and simply click the green call button to start. This small add-in will require that you have Skype messenger installed on your computer or portable device, plus one of the Opera products that supports widgets. One of the disadvantages of this widget is the inability to automatically extract phone numbers from web-pages, which makes the official Skype add-in for desktop browsers superior to it. In addition, it doesn't provide an option to login to Skype. Therefore, you will have to open your Skype and login first, before you can use this tool. Moreover, it doesn't keep a record of dialed destinations, which was the greatest disadvantage that I could find. One-click calling. Simple beautiful design. Cross-platform compatibility. Requires Skype to be installed.
