Using Navicat 9 normally. That works but it costly as well. At home I prefer MySQL workbench and I have to say that the GUI is a lot nicer. Stable and efficient. However my demands at home are not that high...

It is somehow ok. But feels like an IM client from the past. Lots of unpolished areas in the UI. Try to scale the font size for incoming and outgoing msgs... nope. Emoticons look ugly and dull (Hey MS, now where you bought Skype just take theirs!!). And cmd+q does work as a server disconnect. No idea why. All in all I am happy that it is available for Mac users but if I could use sth like Adium I would me much much happier!

Oh boy... the price IS ridiculous! 50 bucks for what? 20, maybe 30 USD. Sorry, but this is a no go!

But it is pretty bad that this relies on Rosetta... At least I was forced to install Rosetta as the software stated it could not run without it.

I totally agree: The new interface is cluttered, takes for no apparent reason lots of screen estate. However you can customize (to some extend) and get used to it (what basically is valid for everything). All in all I pray every day that they come up with a minimize button. And as the rest of the app works pretty well esp. in mixed environments and switching between desktop and iPhone Skype is flawless: 3 Stars!

Maybe I am stupid or simply not geeky enough: But I cannot get it to work simply due to the missing ffmpeg binary. I checked the instructions so many times that I would not be surprised to recall these in my dreams. Downloading the already compiled binary worked through the provided link. But what to do afterwards? I get a bunch of folders with one called bin. After unsuccessfully copying all folders to the user/lib/appl_support/iffmpeg I got an error and came to the conclusion that I have to copy the content from inside the bin folder only. But surprise, surprise I get a "bash: /Users/marcuslo/Library/Application Support/iFFmpeg/ffmpeg: Permission denied" error... I checked the permissions and changed them to everyone rw access. Still same error... Now I am stuck. Can anyone help? Many thanks in advance...

Ok, I think this has to do with the link provided on http://www.iffmpeg.com/page1/page1.html If u download the ffmpeg library with the link provided via "A good place to start is here" you end up with a couple of folders and the problem I did describe before. So u better search for another link (and there are more than just this one on the dev page...). Not sure if it is allowed to post a working link but for me it worked via http://ffmpegbuilds.webfreehosting.net/page1/page1.html After unpacking this gives u one ffmpeg bundle that is working fine. Thanks for the quick reply by the way. I will test iffmpeg now and post a review later on.
