web based instant message systems

Discovered Mibbit. A web based application for IRC, Yahoo Messenger, Twitter. Written in JavaScript. I'll be trying it out in coming weeks.

I haven't kept up with web tech for implementing instant messages, which is quite important and became popular in the past 3 or so years, especially by Google Talk. I looked into it about 4 years ago when a client needs chat functionality on a web site, but at the time i looked, there are like 3 or so Open Source ones i found in the few hours i looked. Most are implemented with PHP, and they are all pretty lousy.
