XIM stands for XKit Instant Messenger. It looks something like this:
There are a few things to know about XIM:
- Your buddy list is stored on your computer, not XIM servers.
- No need to sign up with anything: your blog’s URL is your XIM username.
- When you switch to a sideblog, your sideblog’s URL becomes your username.
- It is in really, really early beta.
Of course, to try it, you need to find XKit 7 users. While XKit 7 is still in closed beta, you can add “xkit-extension” to your buddy list and say hi to me. I’ll write something back if I’m online.
A taste of things to come.
