Skype for OS X 2 (beta)

Skype is great. Most of the people who use it like it. But if you’re a Mac user, you’ve always been a little behind in the game. Fortunately, the good people at Skype are fixing that. Today they’ve released the beta version of Skype 2 for OS X, with video.

Now you can screw over the phone company without having to boot into that pesky Windows XP, and the software is as easy to use as ever. The video features allow you to talk face-to-face with your friends within the Skype application or full-screen, for that GI Joe Videophone thing we all imagined in the ’80s.

Skype calls are still free to other Skype customers, but you’ll have to pay to call landlines or mobiles, though it’s still less than most long-distance, so it’s still a great way to go.
