Windows Live Messenger, or whatever they’re calling it these days, now supports a web-site plug-in allowing chatter. Customization options seem limited. It’s not very “visitor” friendly. All chat sessions require a CAPTCHA, which is a little annoying. And it doesn’t seem to work with Trillian 3.1 Basic … you have to actually sign into Windows Messenger widget. Oh, and messages are displayed in a pop-up web-page, rather than the usual IM interface.
So I’m not thrilled. It’s still in beta, so maybe they’ll improve.
