Googlin - a Weblin clone

6.12.2010

Googlin (beta) launched a desktop client which shows avatars on web pages. Googlin has many features including file transfer, a backpack of media, scalable avatar size, an avatar configurator, a round menu, a buddy list, and a HTML version similar to weblin.lite, and probably much more. 

Googlin uses the XMPP protocol and Adobe AIR.

It seems as if the Googlin people learned a lot from Weblin. Googlin started development shortly before Weblin ceased operation. There are not many users yet, but they just started the beta. Googlin seems to be supported by a former Weblin investor, the Swiss Mountain Partners Group.
