Skype

Once upon a time there as a little rumor that Skype was going to shed its exclusivity with Verizon and once again be available to everyone else. Friends, that day has come. Chat and call all you want. It's cool. Free Skype to Skype calls. Call internationally for cheap. IM your friends. One caveat here is that calls have to be made over Wifi in the United States, but that's not the worst thing in the world.

So let's raise a glass to the death of another exclusive agreement that shut out more users than it included, and get your download on after the break. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
