Got this blog entry from a friend of mine about a VC post of a new startup company. Promptly went to their site and even tried it out.
The new internet app. [We have been seeing a LOT of them lately, havent we?] which aims to work as your browser based IMs all-in-one place. Something analogous to GAIM in a browser. That is what Meebo is for you in short. Hey! but isnt something ringing in your head regarding those keywords? “browser + im”. Hmm… when was the time we heard about one such thing? Oh my, thats the one! … Google Talk in Gmail, isnt it?
What gets me thinking is that when GMail provides with the opportunity of sending a mail from your gmail account as though its from one other accounts[yahoo, msn, corporate, etc] how far is it from integrating the IM support for these other IMs into the browser itself? It already has google chat in gmail isnt it? Or is there something that actually stops it from doing so… Could this be the next thing in the ‘Evolution of Google’??? And then what would happen to meebo? Is Meebo the next in line to be acquiesed by Google?
PS: Dont ask me how I can send mail as though its from my other account from my gmail, I forgot the link 😦
PS : In your Gmail, Go to Settings -> Accounts -> Add email…
