Google Talk client upgraded

Digital Inspiration has a report that Google upgraded it GTalk client to version 1.0.0.104 from version 1.0.0.100. I don’t know what difference the upgrade made but the post got me thinking about Google Talk. I use iChat on my Mac to IM on GTalk and it works great. One of the things I really like about GTalk is that it runs on Jabber and you can use a couple IM clients to access it.

I have pretty much settled on Skype, GTalk and AIM (GTalk and AIM both run on iChat) as my IM/VOIP clients and I enjoy using them. Do you use GTalk? If you do, do you use the GTalk client or some other IM client?

Apparently GTalk is pretty good as a VOIP app as well. What are your experiences with GTalk as a VOIP client?

    Thanks for your feedback. It is interesting that GTalk has better audio quality than Skype. I guess I have tended to think that Skype was better because it was one of the earlier VOIP applications that I ever used.

  4. I guess its because of the fact that GTalk/Jabber uses centralised servers where as Skype uses P2P, which is fine when you are on broadband but giving away 1kb for Frik phoning his girlfriend in Poffader when you only have 6kb is huge.
