me.dium Beta


Me.dium, a new browser plug-in that enables XMPP-based social browsing and messaging with other users of the World Wide Web, has opened up its private beta to members of the Jabber community.


It's a (yet) Firefox extension which shows your virtual neighbors in a sidebar. Protocol seems to be XMPP over HTTPS (@me.dium: correct?). Looks quite professional, smooth animations, additional features, cross web-site chat, no integration with Jabber roster (but hey, you'll want that because they mention Jabber. If they had a proprietary protocol, then you would not even think about roster integration). Well done.

My #6 in the list of firefox-extensions-for-chat-on-web-pages. But surely one of the best in this category.
