4. Tweak and Tune Skype > 43. Make Calls from Your Web Browser

Make Calls from Your Web Browser

Configure Internet Explorer so that you can make calls directly from a web page or from the browser toolbar.

Works with: Windows version of Skype.

There are three ways in which you can make calls directly from within a web browser. The first method uses the URL prefix skype: (note the missing //, as this method won’t work if you include //) to control Skype from within a browser. The second method uses the callto:// URL prefix and can be used in a number of ways to make calls, including from your browser’s address bar or from a link embedded in a web page. The third method uses the Skype Toolbar, which is an add-on application for Internet Explorer (and is available for Microsoft Outlook as well) that you can download at http://www.skype.com/products/skypetoolbars/.
