Google launched a new way to use Google Talk today. The Google Talk Gadget is a web-based module that you can add to your Google Personalized Homepage, letting you see your friends and chat with them all on your homepage.

So these are the few good things about this :

  • You will find all your Gmail and Google Talk contacts organized for you in the Talk Gadget.
  • You don't have to download and install software to use it.
  • It looks and feels the same on a Linux desktop as on a Windows laptop, and it also works on Macs.
  • No matter where you go, all you have to do is login to your Google account, and there it is.
  • You can also put the Google Talk Gadget in Websites Or Blogs, so your visitors can sign in and start instant messaging right from your page
  • If you post your username next to it, visitors can add you as a contact and start chatting with you right away, you can do this by pasting a single line of code into your page.

So give it a try.
