Chat in iGoogle sandbox

Thursday, June 5, 2008 at 2:50 PM



Today there's a new feature for the iGoogle developer sandbox: chat. It enables iGoogle sandbox users to chat not only with each other but the rest of their GTalk network right on their homepages. Your chat friends on iGoogle will be the same chat friends you see in your Gmail and Google Talk. Please note that this is still an early beta feature; we're adding it in the sandbox now so that we can get immediate feedback from our most active users — developers — and to also make sure that all our great themes are updated with this new feature in mind.

So please, report bugs and give us feedback. Here are some known bugs we plan to fix shortly:
  • chat roster not yet themed (please use classic skin for best experience)
  • presentation issues with links in IE7
  • not yet compatible with IE6 and Safari
  • some UI elements are placeholders for now
Thank you in advance for taking time to let us know what you find.
