Not sure about the HTML/JS/CSS … looks like a tightly-written Win32 app to me
Oh, is it? Looked quite like a web page to me… will check out.
I tried out the voice chat. Leaving comparisons aside (as I have not used Skype), the sound quality was amazing. It was almost as if the person was in the room with me. Other than that, no cool features.
Probably thanks to all the fiber optic bandwidth they’re supposed to have purchased. But I wonder how.
Finally got it working at home and tried exploring various features. At the end of the process, realized there are hardly _any_ features. Will take it some time to catch up with features of clients like Yahoo Messenger.
I guess it is better with less features. Thin client is all about that. Less download time. More functionality which avg users click more. Voice quality is great if both parties are using broadband. On dial up, it comes with bit of lag and some echo.
Anand, had some thoughts on where Google Talk may really be headed. Have put a rough outline here.
