Yes, Skype for Mac is still quite ugly, but they just keep bringing features, tweaks and bug fixes. Nothing too exciting in v6.6.0, but it’s one of the small steps forward we’ve come to expect.

Skype for Mac 6.6.0 (download)
— Optimizations to video messaging ensures a consistent Skype experience no matter which device you use
— Upgrading for users with non-administrator accounts
— Improvements to the instant messaging: Reintroduced quick access to the button that lets users edit chat messages
— Resolved file transfer, conversation, calling etc issues

Apple’s iChat pretty much did it all, yet most folks still used Skype as their go-to IM-VOIP-Video chat app.

What would it take for Apple’s FaceTime + Messages one-two-punch to displace Skype for Mac? A single interface or does Apple need to something more fundamental to raise their game?

How would you change Messages + FaceTime or, for that matter, Skype for Mac to make it better?
