Dropped Skype

There was a time when I had Skype open while at my desk. It was my preferred chat and video call client. And then it got bigger and more obnoxious. Nowadays I am on Google Talk, simply through GMail and Google+. But those only worked while I was on either site.

Now there is an extension for Chrome which keeps you logged into Google Talk, no matter which site you are on. Recommended.

Why are you not using Adium?

Is there a browser version? ;-)

GoogleTalk and Google+ are the same to me. Little value, as the people I communicate with aren't there. Same reason Facetime is not big for me, my family and relatives are using PCs.

Most people I deal with have Gmail, so they kinda automatically show up on Google Talk.

Consolidated clients seem to be the best way to have one interface and be connected but the limitations in functionality make those hard to work with as well.
