Take a look…

Chat with Yahoo, MSN Buddies Using Gtalk

Psi Instant messaging is the most popular means of communications over the internet today. A few years ago, there were only a handful of messaging services to choose from, but now there are so many that it has become increasingly difficult to keep track of and chat with all your buddies who use different messaging services.

Google has its own messenger known as Google Talk, but it also allows users to chat right inside the internet browser. The chats get saved and became searchable in the mail, which is one reason why many people moved to Google Talk. A couple of years ago, Google Talk opened up their chat protocol to Jabber networks, which has paved the way for Google Talk users to chat with their buddies on AIM, MSN, Yahoo or even ICQ. Read on to find out how it can be done.

You require Psi, which is a free Jabber client, and Google Talk to achieve this. Psi can be downloaded from http://psi-im.org, and Google Talk, which can be downloaded from http://talk.google.com. Install these two IM clients and proceed with configuration.
