I am sure there will be more, but this is a great side effect of using Lync (a co-worker tipped me off to this).  Lync will embed click to call functionality within websites.  Third parties created some add-ons in OCS for this, but it is nice to see that it is now native to the installation.

When you view a website, you will notice the Lync Click to Call icons wherever there is a phone number:

best buy search

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When hovering over the Click to Call icon, it shows the action:

houston listings

 

 

 

 

 

Once you click the icon, Lync immediately opens up a call window and calls the number:

phone call

 

 

 

 

 

Ahhh, the simple things in life.  Beats copying and pasting!
