Microsoft continues to surprise us with pleasant news, and the last for this week is launching a Web version of Skype. This is a project that will allow conducting free calls from all major browsers, powered by Web Real-Time (WebRTC) standard. The new service was presented in the official blog of Skype.

Microsoft warns that users will need to download the plugin (for now) until it WebRTC standard embed in Internet Explorer. Eventually, the company plans to launch the service on all major browsers – Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari. In the beginning it will be in beta and will be “available to a small number of users” and placing will be gradual over the coming months.

WebRTC is an open project that allows Internet users to communicate in real time using voice and video only using WebRTC-enabled browser. It allows web developers to include video calling and sharing real-time data in their products.

Ultimately, the web version of Skype can be a serious threat to the competitive service of Google, Hangouts (which does not require a plugin), but it is still too early to say something concrete. We expect more information soon.
