Why does Skype try to only use a web installer and hides any offline installers?
After long searching and finding tons of links from Download.skype.com referring to outdated versions I finally found a link to the newest version. This is as of 8/6/2012 :
I hope Skype can make something available that always references the latest offline installer and make this location known on either their regular site or their support section.
both types of installers require that you have an Internet connection when you install, so they are not really 'offline' installers
Of course one needs internet connection to run skype but that's besides the point here. An offline installers is preferable and very much needed as often people are working on slow internet connections with extremely slow download speeds and sometimes people are also on limited broadband packages...
