Google has recently added the ability to chat in Google Talk to its Gmail service, as well as keeping a record of the chat. The beautiful thing about it is that it doesn’t even need an external program now. You can chat from a popup straight in your web browser, or use Google Talk or any other Jabber client if you want to take advantage of any of Jabber and Google Talk’s advanced features.
I’m loving it – much easier than having another program load up, and it keeps the logs for me so I don’t have to worry about losing my chat logs. If anyone wants to reach me, hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need an invite to Gmail because you’re not in the US and can’t use your cell, also drop me a line – I’ve still got almost 100 invites.
