Having talked about it in a post the other day, I found the link (http://www.google.com/talk/) and installed it.

I’ve been trying it out and it is quite good. No bells and whistles, just a VOIP client for talking between PC’s over the network.

Rather than have your MSN, Yahoo and other chat programs loaded, using memory and resources, Google Talk has quite a small memory foot print. It’s only other feature is that it performs the same role as the Gmail notifier, letting you know when you have Gmail.

Google Talk is a downloadable Windows application that lets you send instant messages to your friends and make free phone calls over an internet connection. Google Talk offers excellent voice quality and works with any computer speaker and microphone.

Gmail is Google’s free email service, offering lots of free storage, powerful spam protection, built-in search for finding your messages, and a helpful way of organizing email into “conversations.” And there are no pop-up ads or untargeted banners – just text ads and related information that are relevant to the content of your messages.
