Skype opens every chat message in the same window. Not sure what’s the reason for this, I think it’s everything else than useful and furthermore disabling this “feature” is anything but user-friendly…

So, we are on Linux. Skype Version 4.3.0.37. Open the Options window, navigate to IM in the left menu. There you’ll find a checkbox called Use Default View. As always with MS products, this expressive option will change your life. With pure magic, it will improve your chat experience as soon as you’ve unchecked it.

So, disable Use Default View and Skype will act like every other user-friendly chat client on earth.
