Web version of MSN Messenger in the works
MSN is about to release a web-based version of its popular Instant Messaging service, reports Mess with MSN Messenger. This means you will be able to chat with your contacts in a similar way like you do with MSN Messenger but using just a web browser on any computer (at school, at work, at a friend's house or anywhere you can't install the MSN Messenger software). Much like -and probably as Microsoft's reaction to- the currently available third party services like WBMSN.net and e-Messenger.net.

MSN Web Messenger, as the service is called, is currently being beta-tested. A full version can be expected later this year at http://webmessenger.msn.com, which currently returns as unavailable..

Here's an overview of the features likely to be included in the trimmed-down MSN Web Messenger:

  • group conversations,
  • customization of your text font, size and color,
  • emoticons (no custom emoticons!),
  • send and receive e-mail messages,
  • add contacts to your contact list.

    Most probably not included in the web-based client are:
  • audio/video conversations,
  • "fun & games" applications,
  • file exchange,
  • display pictures, window backgrounds and custom emoticons.

    The news source has some screenshots and updated information on this new service.
