Skype allows users to make voice and video calls over the Internet. Although calls to other Skype users are free, other types of connections (landlines, SMS text) are not. Additional features include instant messaging, file transfer and conferencing.

sPortable is a version from PortableApps.com. Note that the program became adware after it's inclusion in the database (after it's purchase by Microsoft).

Gets worse with every update. Locks up and freezes half the time when trying to use emoticons.

Great app! I use this regularly for my language classes.

I'm having a lot of problems with this program on Win7x64. It won't minimize, it won't close unless you do an "End Task" in Task Manager, and it doesn't remember me between sessions. Anyone else having issues?

Miranda NG is a multi-protocol instant messaging client drawn from the popular Miranda IM. The app supports the most common protocols by default including AIM, Facebook, GG, ICQ, IRC, Jabber, and Skype. However, additional protocols (including Discord, Skype, Tox, Twitter, WhatsApp etc.), plugins and languages are available via "Main menu > Show full plugin list" (see online list).

As NG is a code fork of Miranda, an FAQ about the differences is available.

Alternatively, Miranda NG Portable is also available.

smaragdus: My understanding is that they include all the popular plugins inside the distro. This is because plugin fragmentation and version issues were part of the reason for the Miranda NG code fork.

new skype support in developer version. skypeweb plugin found on there board

I really didn't like not being able to hit "enter" and have the message send. You can configure this behavior under options - Message sessions - General tab - Sending messages - checkbox "Send message on 'Enter'"

If that seems like a lot to go through to configure something fairly basic, that's kind of how this client works: a little confusing with a trade-off of intense customization.

Be aware that you only have to hold down the shift key when clicking the second/third/fourth column. To sort the first column you should not hold down the Shift key.

I wish this app supported threaded in-chat conversations.

Right now, it's a very basic, barebones log.
