Chat aims to fill this gap.

"This evening I decided to play with a really kewl new app called Fluid. What this app does is allow you to create Site Specific Browsers. One of the first usages which popped into mind was a product I helped develop, Yahoo! Web Messenger. An annoyance of mine with it is that it had to live in a browser tab, something prone to getting closed accidentally, and also didn’t have any decent notifications of new messages when not in focus. Being the perfect candidate for Fluid, IMHO, I set out to give it a shot. In less than an hours time I built a pretty kewl demo and here’s how you can use it too.

Read on for a howto and example video..."

"...In honor of Earth Day (3 weeks from today: April 22, 2008), on that day our Google Talk servers will start automatically sending your conversations using IM-speak instead of normal words. But you can help save some computing power (and more wasted energy!) by shortening your conversations yourself.

We know you'll all want to practice your IM-speak, so we're helping by introducing a new translation bot, en2im@bot.talk.google.com, which will translate your conversations into IM-speak, to help you get used to the new lingo.
For example, if we want to say:
As far as I'm concerned, you can give me the twenty dollars you owe me when I see you later.

You could save more than 50% in wasted characters by saying:
AFAIC, U can gve me the 20 $$ YOM whn I CUL8R."
