Just pointed out to me that the latest Skype beta includes a iChat-like screensharing feature for users so that collaboration between OSX users is possible. Very cool. Haven’t had a chance to test it yet, and probably not as polished at iChat’s but still have to say this will be a killer feature when it works between OSX, Windows and Linux. It is definitely needed.
Apparently video and audio quality are also improved (great for my parents to worry about how I’m not taking care of myself).
The only other feature I really want them to get is multiple video chat windows a la iChat. That would be great.
In the meantime though, check it out and download the new Skype beta for Mac OS X. Especially if you’re back in North America or Australia, I’m interested in testing how good the screensharing is.
