check out the new gtalk

Here are the pros and cons of this experimental version of Google Talk:-


1: Smilies or Emoticans
Finally, Google talk team decided that emoticans are a feature they cannot give a miss and hence decided to include that in the labs edition.
2: Launch Google Calendar And Orkut
Yes, you can launch Google Calendar and Orkut directly from this edition of Google Talk.
3: Tabbed interface
Google Talk Labs edition has a tabbed interface where you can have multiple chats in tabs. This is quite useful for those who chat with more than one person at a time.
4: Notifications for Google Calendar events and Orkut scraps.
Apart from notifying you when you get an email in your Gmail account, it also notifies you for your Google Calendar events and Orkut Scraps. I personally like the Google Calendar notification, because now you don’t need to check the Google Calendar again and again for different tasks or events.


1: Windows Only
Currently it is Windows only, however I am sure that once this product graduates out of the labs, it’ll have a Mac and Linux version too.
2: No Voice calling
This is an important feature which is missing in this edition of Google Talk client. I am not sure why Google Talk team decided to do away with this feature but if you use Gtalk for voice calling then this edition is not for you.
3: No file transfer
Yes Google Talk Labs edition does not allow file transfer. So you’ll have to rely on your gmail for that, while chatting.
4: No Proxy configuration
Google Talk Labs edition doesnot provide the feature of using a proxy, i.e if you are in a college or office network you can't actually use it :P
So what do you think? Will you go ahead and try out this labs edition of Google Talk ?
