Advantage of the Skype:

Quality of the interface: While many such applications are cross-platform and never look good on any system, the Mac OS X version of Skype has a clear, easy-to-understand interface that makes interacting with the application a lot easier. Even the toolbar icons use some system-standard metaphors and drawings, which denote the attention that went into it.

Skype Global Directory: The user-built global Skype contacts directory with numerous search options and an easy add-a-contact tool.

Ability to cross firewalls: While testing it behind quite a hefty firewall and a NAT-enabled router, I was able to receive and place calls normally.

Instant messaging: Cross platform messaging ability.

Skype Out service: Skype allows you to reach most numbers, no matter where you are calling from and for a constant fee. This is without doubt a great plus for travelers and, unless your phone company is extremely good, is very likely to help you save some money on your regular bills.
