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:
on GitHub at https://github.com/jacksenechal/Skype-for-Chrome
or the extension on the Chrome web store
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.
