The Skype Click to Call plug-in is no longer available for the Safari web browser on Mac OS X. If you already have the plug-in installed on your computer, you can keep using it as before. However, if you upgrade to Mac OS X Mavericks, you may experience compatibility issues. To avoid the issues, we recommend that you disable Skype Click to Call in your browser preferences.
The plug-in automatically highlights phone numbers wherever they appear on the web, and lets you call them with one click through your Skype account. It's free to call numbers that are labeled FREE.
