Skype 5 looks like it has some UI improvements, although many seem to disagree, but it’s almost three times as memory hungry as the previous version. I need that like I need a hole in my head, as my granny used to say.
- Skype 5.0: 178 MB memory usage
- Skype 2.8: 67 MB memory usage
And as usual, it’s nigh impossible to find any useful information on the Skype website. If you want to downgrade:
- Delete the Skype.app from the Applications folder
- Download the old Skype version here
