Mac OS X "Since its introduction iChat has become the de facto Instant Messaging client on Mac OS X, allowing users to communicate using text, audio, and even video chat. The new version of iChat in Leopard opens up these capabilities to other applications on the system, allowing those applications to provide content through an iChat session." My take: Now, if Apple would implement support for MSN and other protocols for those of us (especially in Europe) who do not use AIM/ICQ, this could be a whole lot more interesting.

Google is a pretty big company if you ask me ;)

http://talk.google.com

if you want to talk to everyone.. you have to speak the same language.. who gives a crap about MSN? it's a closed protocol.. only Microsoft will have reliable service using it.. let's all speak Jabber instead! It's an open and free language..

Any idea if Google have opened their servers to talk to other Jabber servers yet?

Ah it seems they did last year, seems I missed it. Well that's good news. I'll probably be recommending Google Talk to more people now. If only Google's privacy record was a bit better...
