The callto:// syntax

Yesterday, I discovered something quite funky. Just like <a href=”mailto://” is the syntax for invoking a mail application from the Web page, it seems you can do the same for invoking a Skype call and also Yahoo Messenger from the Web Page.

So, if you want to Skype me, then you click on this

If you want to Yahoo! IM me, then you click on this

Pretty nifty, eh?

Cheers,
Thyaga
