Google Instant Messenger - Google Talk BETA


S

Sparx

After dominating the search scene on the web, grabbing the monopoly of
online usenet viewing and search, making email providers sit up and take
notice when GMail was launched, mapping the Earth & the Moon, Google have
now debuted their new BETA version of the Instant Messenger which includes
the ability to communicate by Voice to a fellow user.

It's called Google Talk BETA [ http://www.google.com/talk ] ( but I might
start a trend by shortening it to GTalk ! )

The client is based on the Jabber Protocol so other clients can connect to
GTalk users.

Once again Google have demonstrated a responsibility toward using Open
Source / non-proprietary protocols. At first glance it appears functional
and what I found sets it apart from other messengers is its small size - 900
KB !

Only Miranda IM [ http://www.miranda-im.org ] is smaller and BTW, it
supports the Jabber protocol with the help of a plugin.

"Requires Windows XP/2000, minimum 56k (broadband recommended)

Google Talk is in beta and requires a Gmail username and password."

So far, I'm not eligible 'cause I don't have either!!
