Yahoo! Oops.. I mean Google!!


Continuing my previous post.

I have the Gmail chat enabled in my account! And it just rocks :). This thing is sooo cool!

They have designed it so perfect :-). Oh. Guess they must have hired some expert in UI. Probably a Phd. ;). Now this is what I call a communication system. There is no VoIP (*yet*), but I’ll keep my x*fingers crossed*x. You never know what these guys are upto or what they can do.

Just to give an example: Whenever you get an IM from any of your contacts, the color of the title bar of the window that appears is the same as the highlight color of that contact’s name in the contact list on the left. Neat.

Another thing is the dancing (rotating) emoticons. Although there are only a few of them. The dialog which appears on hover over a contact’s name is also neat.

In short, I love it! Although, I’d like the window’s name to blink in the taskbar when I get a message and I am working in some other window. Just like Yahoo! messenger or GTalk for that matter. Some people might find it annoying, but I guess its needed. Not the sound. Just the visual.

Google rocks!
