Friends of LunarAdventures:
Review: Google Talk
This review is going to be short, since I use a Mac. Google Talk software doesn’t work on Macs. Surprise.
If you use a Mac chat client with Jabber support(such as Adium or iChat), you can connect to Google Talk servers using the Jabber protocol. (here’s how.) I’m doing that, so, to me, Google Talk looks just like Adium.
C- for Google Talk. Props for making a nice, clean interface (or so I think, based on screen shots). Props for making it Jabber. Big minus props for not making us a pretty Mac version. Also, continued big minus props for continuing to use Arial font EVERYWHERE in Google-land, which drives me nuts. I hate that font.
If you want to give Google Talk a shot, try me at firstname.lastname@example.org (but don’t email me there — I rarely check that email address). Or, you can just IM me at my usual AIM screen name of MikieMills.
