I've been using Skype for a long time now, and it's pretty much the only way I chat to friends in game, and do video calls. Heck, I've even record a weekly podcast via Skype.
But, as I'm sure most people are aware, Skype is pretty shitty. The audio quality is so-so, the automatic audio ducking it does when someone talks is garbage and the part where it turns down all your other applications while you're on a call is inconsistent at best.
And now, it has even better ads:
Skype. Please, stahp. You're pushing me over the line. Anyone got any good alternatives (preferable with video chat too)?
