Instant Messaging Through a Web Browser

Monday, November 14, 2005
Found a cool site that lets you IM through a web browser. Particularly useful if you are in a location where you can't install IM software or you are behind a firewall that doesn't allow IM protocols through. The site is I've used it at my work because our firewall blocks MSN and a few others. It works pretty well. It's not perfect and doesn't work exactly the same way you would expect an IM client to work but it is at least functional.It's based on AJAX technology (much like Goolge Maps)which is changing the way we interact with the Web.
