Google software of the day

The new software release from Google: Google talk; an IM client that is most likely out there to compete with similar programs like:

and others…

The interface is quite trimmed and sleek and I like the look of it. I miss emoticons, though. πŸ™‚
Also, I guess I need to add this to my list with speculations about the future of Google.

    Why is it that Google easily manages to compete with their products, even if they don't really introduce anything new…

  • Martin S, says:

    I think Google has a lot of more insight in how products should be developed than for instance Microsoft. Google makes everything simple and also makes the job done. With Microsoft products you often get the job done, but it's not as simple with Google products.

    This might be something to follow.

  • It’s really, really sad that they don’t offer a client for Linux users. I tried to log-in in Gaim, because as far as I got it, the network is the same as in Jabber. But it didn’t work. πŸ™

    Jere, Martin S,

    While Google are very good at creating applications, Jere has a good point too: it's about Google having a way better reputation than, for instance, Microsoft.

    But if they implement things like the one mentioned in Google Toolbar 3 and AutoLink, that can easily be changed…


    Yes, I'm sorry about that. But it seems that they always initially make sure it works on the vast Windows market, and then, maybe, port it to Mac and Linux.

    i agree with Martin.
