skypeThere's not even 50 people on our Skype buddy list, but in addition to clear voice chats, Skype is adding enough interesting features that we might have to start convincing our IM buddies to switch. Skype has launched an incremental upgrade to its Windows client that lets up to 50 people enter an IM chat room, in addition to its already secure IM chats and file transfers. They've also improved the interface with a better buddy list, avatars, and system tray notifications. Maybe they'll launch a Mac update soon.
