I hate Skype for no other reason that the amount of spam I get with it.
Everyday there's some hot girl from some country I've never heard of
begging to be my friend. I know some of you guys get this in real life all

So I welcome a replacement for Skype.
Installing the Hangout extensions now, thanks for pointing them out.
