    Which of the above is the best?

    no

    if your making pc to pc calls they just need the same chat program as you.

    msn and yahoo have good webcams as well so you can see the person talk to you.

    I prefer msn for this but yahoo is good too

    All of the above could be said about Skype 18 months ago.

    I am sure the others are good. Skype has been good a long time.
