"Mixed Reviews, Irritations"

Pros:  None

Cons:  None

Other Thoughts:  It's really irratating when websites redirect to other sites based on server domain. I'm an American working temporarily in Germany. When I attempt to access the Skype USA website, I'm instantly redirected to the German website. Of course, I don't speak German. And, because of that, it took several minutes to find an option on that website to select another language or website. Others will face the exact same situation while traveling overseas for either business or pleasure.

Do the developers of these websites (which redirect) think we're too stupid to select the website we want? Most Europeans seem smart enough to select the website within their own country. Gee, for Germans, it's the one in German. If they choose not to, there's often a valid reason. Regardless, there are many millions, like myself, temporarily living and working in countries where the local language is not our own native languages. We need to be able to easily select websites within our own countries, which this redirect nonsense hinders.

Anyway, the Skype service is certainly extremely handy for those of us living overseas. Lacking more info, I decided not to update to this latest version until it's been out for a while (too many mixed reviews, bug reports, etc).
