Those who still use Windows 7 or 8.1 on an old machine and don't want to use the terrible slow and non-native Skype 8 application have option to use Skype for Web https://web.skype.com/ in a web browser for simple text chat (I don't need anything else).

Now there is announcement "Support for this version of Skype for Web is coming to an end. A new preview version is available now for Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome with HD video calling, call recording and much more." :twisted: No, I'll never use anything Google based.

Is there any technical reason behind or Microsoft is playing bad again? I tried to spoof the user-agent by an addon and the new Skype web site https://go.skype.com/skype.preview.web works ok.
