Well, I always joke that Gmail is taking over the world, and here they go again. Now, right in your gmail window, while chatting with a friend, you can do a video chat.

I have not tried it out yet. I need to get a guinea pig on the other end. The only drawback I see though is that you have to install a browser plug-in. This is not a problem for most folks, but some cooperate users like gmail because their company allows them to use it without needing to install anything on their machines, so if they are interesting in video chat, they will not be able to use it.

I will post more once I have tested it. 🙂
