I can paste into Flash-based Google Talk under Linux...
But Polish chars (and possibly other international chars) still doesn't work. That's a deal breaker for an international audience.
And of course firefox's sidebar is still a best way to use this product.

You can add to bookmarks and trough bookmark manager check "Load this bookmark in the sidebar" in properties window

Happy surf and chat! :)

Me neither, I think it's ideal. It uses the free browsing space, especially when using a widescreen monitor.

I was always hoping their iG gadget would look like the gmail implementation. unintrusive (in gmail, talk isn't visible), but with a gmail style popup if someone contacts you (and a status manager, where you can say if you wish to appear available if you are on your iG page). To start a chat, one could always go through gmail. Basically, i wanted to be available more often on chat.

Now, with talkgadget.google.com/talkgadg ... i can load the talk gadget whenever i start a firefox session into the all-in-one sidebar extension multipanel (which remembers the last side loaded on startup, and i never used the multipanel for anything else). So i am available on chat whenever i surf, with little loss of screen real estate.

Its strange that there is a option to actually talk, even though the client doesn't support it, as far as I can tell. I tried with two of the web interfaces open and it stays grayed out.

Am i the only one who cant see any contacts online (I'm waiting for more than 20 minutes now) even though i do have online contacts online on the client?

It's just a shortcut for the desktop version (googletalk.exe) in case you do have it.

But why would you have both of the clients open at the same time?

More steps closer to the online desktop... hopefully this gadget will be integrated more tightly with Gmail. I think that integration is the key really here for Google.

They've certainly got the users using their search, when there is a large amount of integration users won't need to leave the 'Google environment', like Microsoft has in the desktop market.
