Skype Instant Message History Using 100% CPU On OSX

I really miss the old versions of Skype on my Macbook running OSX Mountain Lion. While I could just download and install one of the Skype version for .DMG’s some people I talk with require the newer version of Skype to use some of the features not available in the older versions, etc. I wish Skype would stop with the Facebook integration and all the other fancy stuff and just allow me to send instant messages and make phone calls as I am not sure I have ever seen a piece of software that I once liked so much take so many steps backwards. Anyhow the issue at hand is Skype on OSX Mountain Lion using all of your computers CPU and unfortunately my resolution to the issue is to use a third party application to view Skype history.
