Skype for Mac/Windows: Web Client
An alternative to installing the full Skype program on Mac and Windows is simply browsing to https://web.skype.com allows similar functionality to the Linux Skype program using Firefox, Chrome, IE or Safari. The Linux Skype program is built upon the web client, hence the similar feature sets.
