Sorry I don’t have much time at the moment to write up a whole entry about this, but I am very excited about this.
I am a big fan of roundcube but I have always wanted the ability to integrate some instant messaging into it. Well google finally released a gtalk gadget that allows you to integrate gtalk/gchat into any page you want. Although, google has done a very poor job of announcing this and I don’t think most people know about it.
Anyways, it is a very simple single line <iframe> code. I just quickly added it to the roundcube template and made a few changes to the CSS code and it works perfectly.
Click the image above to see a larger screen shot. I will write up the code for this later when I have some free time.
