Re: Web App for Google Chromebook?

check how you can "install linux on chromebook" and you will understand what flipping of dev switch is. Also notice that Skype installation may sill not work.

Microsoft and Google stope the nonesense and develop Skype for chromebook already! in such open world I do not believe someone is looking for such a trivial app as a differentiator that need to be guarded.. this is so frustrating soon people will start flocking out of both of you to someone nutral

Looks like they are not going to release it soon

 

There are couple of good extensions in Chrome store though, that do almost the same as Skype does. Just check in "Social & Communication ->  Chat & IM" category.

 

I've ended up with Videolink2.me, it doesn't require registration so is pretty good for quick video calls.

Might not be what you're looking for, but you CAN use Skype via Outlook.com for IM, although not video calling..

Right now the only way to actually install skype for chrome os would require flipping the dev switch
I don't have a chromebook but I wonder about trying to install the linux version that way and then somehow calling it up through a webpage 


How would one go about doing this??
