Google Talk’s Windows interface looks nice, I’ll have to try it. And I can’t test it out in iChat either, my clamshell has Panther, with the non-Jabber version.

Sure thing is, Gmail beta invites are going to be all the rage again. Between Google, Microsoft, AOL, Yahoo and small brand-less Jabber servers, who’d you rather trust your messages to?

But, on the screenshots, where are the ads?

P.S. Download Squad:

Google also tells us that they don’t yet have solid plans on making money with the service, but plan on using it to drive users to Gmail.

Just when I was about to complain that the Windows client’s “Email” button seems hard-wired to Gmail, which is inconvenient for that category of geeks who like to use Google products but still want to keep their own e-mail address.

Well, there’s still a Jabber TLS server sporting the capacity and reliability the world expects from Google — and I read that even the VoIP part works with iChat (not that I have any need for that, though).

P.S. You can’t send messages to offline contacts, you’re redirected to Gmail instead. Sucks. That’s a definite deal breaker for me.
