    The new Skype version has an annoying Skype Home button in the left menu bar. There seem to be solutions to remove it for Windows, but non for OS X Lion, as far as I can see.

    Does anyone know, how to get rid of it?

    Thanks!

    I don't know how to remove it, but I'd suggest getting an older version of Skype. I still use v2.8 where the interface is still minimalistic.

    Indeed a good idea.

    Are there any problems with connecting to the Skype network with the older versions?

    I remember ICQ quit working in older versions, if you waited too long with the upgrade.

    Thanks!

    I just updated to the latest Skype version yesterday and came across the Home button annoyance. I downgraded back to my previous version via Time Machine since v5.5 doesn't seem to have any must-have features that I care about. In my case, the old version is 5.3.0.1093 and doesn't have a Home button.

    And similarly for my iPad, I have avoided updating to Skype v3.6.1 because the only feature it said it is adding is banner ads. No thanks!
