how to use tab in skype in ubuntu

Until recently,skype refused to harness the power of 'tab' in its desktop client.Now they make it available in their client but only for windows and mac.Just like always,they forgot the linux community.
But it is possible to use tab in skype in linux too.
To install it in ubuntu,type the following in terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:keks9n/main
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install skypetab
 Now to have the tabs,just start skype tab before starting skype.That's all needed.
Its experimental repository;so please avoid it if you are not sure what you are doing.
