Google IM

Google launches Instant Messenger using the Jabber protocol.

Other clients (Trillian/Gaim/Adium) are supported out of the box, though there is a (Windows only) client.

I'm on as digitalraven@gmail.com, and if people don't start using this in place of fucking MSN I may turn violent.

Dammit, Stew, then I'm getting out of your way. It won't replace MSN. People use MSN because it comes standard on their computer. That's it. It's the 800lb gorilla of the situation. Unless Windows stops being the standard OS on every computer, everyone will use MSN.

End of story.

Just like Firefox has done fuck-all against IE? Oh, wait...

Woke up and saw the news. Hadn't had day's first cigarette. Hatred of MSN. Hence hyperbole.

IE still has 87% of the market, and it gained ground on Firefox in July. (No idea since then.) Trust me, I hate MSN Messenger as much as anyone, but it's not going anywhere.

Don't be violent. Being violent makes the baby water buffalo sad. ;-; And everyone doesn't want the baby water buffalo to be sad.

Great another instant messanger program to add to the huge collection of them (ICQ, Yahoo, MSN, AIM, does it ever stop!)

Ah well so I did get it so I should stop complaining.
