Facebook has today added a quick chat function which is very similar to gmail's in webpage-chat. It shows everyone who is currently online and lets you send text-chats. Its pretty much a carbon copy to be honest.

Take a look: www.facebook.com

Hope they link the 2 together at some point.

I don't like it :-(

In Gmail it's out of the way, here it's in the middle of the content. And I don't like the feel of it in general.

another thing I just noticed: it doesn't actually work properly

Just tried it with a friend and it failed to send the message for over 5 min. Thats not really instant messaging is it.

It worked fine for me when I saw it this morning and wondered whether I should post about it on blogoscoped.com. Actually I have been hoping for chat in facebook since I started using it.

Seems to work fine for me.

By fine I mean as it's supposed to :-)

I haven't tested it at all, but the idea seems like a solid one. Google's not quite as good as Facebook when it comes to guessing who my friends are.
