Wow, this is wild. Google just released their IM client, Google Talk. It uses open standards, so Trillian, iChat (hurrah!) and GAIM can use it right off the bat. And there's a new Windows client. Check it out here,

http://www.google.com/talk/index.html

I wonder how they'll fare against the juggernauts, AIM (America) and MSN (Everywhere else)!

According to the Wikipedia Article you can add [email protected] to your buddy list and send it a text message of "play" to play a game of hunt the wumpus.

I sent it an invite and am waiting to get accepted.  Weird stuff.

Hmmm.  Doesn't work with Windows 98.  That's no big deal; I don't use IM clients.

However, rumor is that Google may be looking to buy out Skype someday, which I use frequently.  I don't want them pulling Win98 functionality from that.  Not just I, but many others would be very disappointed.

Argh.  If I want iChat functionality I've got to upgrade to OS X Tiger.  $120 for GoogleChat in the midst of paying for currently worthless insurance + COBRA?  Yeah, I can swing that...  :roll:

I love ya Google, but you'll just have to wait.

CrayolaNate,

Jabber support is present in iChat 1.x in Panther. Just follow their instructions, and it should work. And I'm pretty sure that the next time we have dinner (still need to see the Aristocrats) that my Tiger DVD might accidently come along for the ride. :-)

I tried to follow their directions, and my "Accounts" screen looks nothing like what they've got.  My choices are AOL or .Mac.  That's it.  I followed the link at the bottom to the iChat page, did some digging, and according to this Jabber isn't supported in iChat in any OS revision save Tiger.  Thus my lament.

Now, the rest of your message sounds delightful.  What are the chances of you getting out of work early on Friday?  :wink:

I use the cheap version smile  And I'm in no rush to add another chat program.  Lord knows I have contacts across four other networks already, and all four of them work fine.
