    Lightbulb down loading skype for linux


    I don't know if anyone else has had this happen, but when trying to download skype from worldwideweb.skype.com I could not get it to download after choosing my distribution. However for some reason I tried using Firefox instead of Chromium for my browser and it worked perfectly. I don't know if there is a conflict between that website and Chromium but I thought i should pass it along.

    I have had experiences like that with IE and websites but I am new to linux so am not sure.
    I hope this is an okay place to put this.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    The problem was likely in your Chrome security settings. For somethings it is more restrictive than Mozilla.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
