    I always used to use the chat feature in Gmail but that got a little neglected since I started using the imap client in Opera.
    I thought that this would make a nice little web panel for Opera.
    Though before I can actually test this, I would have to fix a problem first that I can’t seem to login to any client with my Google account passwords. Don’t know what is broken. :(

    My primary IM is ICQ (still popular around here). It can be used in gmail via IM but that is one seriously buggy solution.

    For sidebar panel https://www.meebo.com/mobile/ is awesome, this is actually how I use it most now.

    On login – you mean you can use google password fine, except with third party clients? That is weird. I don’t think there are any options to restrict third party apps from connecting.

    Does native Google Talk client work for you?

    @Rarst
    Not even the Google Talk native client works. The Google Talk gadget works when I am logged in to Gmail and the chat feature inside Gmail works. I am copying/pasting passwords which work on Gmail but not on any of these clients so that can’t be the problem. Unless there was an option to change Google talk username to something other than my gmail username which I had followed, I don’t really see what could be the problem. I would take this to the google forums and see if they can provide any help.

    Had you at least tried Meebo? Or at another location? If web clients work, but not desktop ones it might be some connectivity issues at your computer.

    Yes of course. Meebo also shows that username/password is incorrect and another web client that I have tried at an Indian social networking site also shows the same problem.
