Google Talk Chatback Widget

Google released a new "chatback badge" allowing your site's visitors to chat with you, provided you're logged in to Google Talk at the time. All you need to do is copy & paste a snippet into your site. You can change the title of the badge, also toggle whether you want your status message to show, and adjust your nickname as displayed to guests. (Note that someone can even launch a chatback when they're not logged in to their Google account; the webmaster who included the gadget will just see them as "Guest.")

Here's a live example of the badge using the default widget settings, though I might be offline:
