The best free online chat service

Advantages: The best online free messenger
I use skype nearly all day everyday not only to chat with freinds but also to work with as they do fantastic conferance video calling to clients and work colleagues.
Skype is an online free messnger where you can type to people, web cam one another and join conferances so group calls basically with up to 4 people in tow. It is free to use however if yu want to make phone calls from skype to a mobile or landline then you have to add credit, but syaing this the credit is incredibly cheap and skype to skype calls are free.
It is the cheapest way to contact people and therefore if people are skype to skype then you can have the cheapest lines of communication outside of bt and other main leading telephone companies.
There are skype handsets which can be bought, as a proper phone or simply as a head set, I prefer to theadsets when havgin conferances on skype as it allows you to have your hands free to continue to type when needed.
Regarding webcam I have not found a messenger which produces such as clear a picture as skype and the picture can be made full screen also which is always a bonus.
You can find people who are on skype by simply typing in their name, email address or skype name and then instantly add them as frends, when you see your freind list the ones who are online will show up with either a green lit status to say they are able to chat or a yellow one to state they are away.
It is a quirky and very clear way of communication on the web and certainly better than the majority of chat providers online as well as much cheaper overall.
