Now that Skype has been merged with Windows Live Messenger, it’s more popular than ever. There’s no way to use Skype with a third-party client, but Skype does offer hidden features that can make it more powerful.
The thing that still prevents me from regularly using Skype is the fact that anyone can get your current ip address if they have your Skype name and you are online.
Trillian is a third-party client that is compatible with Skype.
To edit latest skype message, press left mouse button on place where you write messages and press button UP.

all well and good for Windows users, but I use Mac and Windows:
sudo /Applications/Skype.app/Contents/MacOS/Skype /secondary
in a terminal window will get a 2nd instance running; didn't find a quell for adverts tho
and actually (in Mac at least) in the Advanced tab you can select "Allow direct connections to my contacts only" and this prohibits non-contacts from seeing your IP
You can also add: FREE VIDEO CALL RECORDER FOR SKYPE by DVDVIDEOSOFT. It records voice and image.
Nice one - available in Windows version too.
MP3 Skype Recorder dies December 2013.
Multiple Accounts: This is kind of iffy when set to sign in automatically; after exiting both sessions, the next time you launch it, it tends to sign in as the second account most of the time (but not always). Although, this may be because my primary shortcut was a hotmail/messenger account while the secondary account was a true Skype account.
