Skype for Chrome

I’m working on a Chrome extension that will link phone numbers within pages so you can call them with Skype. It’s rough, but check it out if you’re interested:

In particular, I haven’t figured out how to make the external URL handler that Chrome uses on Linux (xdg-open) recognize the callto: link format. This plugin may just work for y’all out there on Windows or OS X though, I don’t know. I’ll post an update when I have more.


I did manage to figure out the xdg-open issue. It’s documented in the project’s README file.
