Window Live Launches Messenger Web Widget

The Window Live Messenger Team has launched a web based Messenger widget that can be embedded in blogs and website. This is similar to the widgets provided by and But unlike meebo and plugoo which are flash based this widget is javascript based. Using this widget even anonymous users who visit your blog can send you an IM which will pop-up in your Windows Live messenger. See the screen shots below. I have played around with the meebo and plugoo gadgets and personally feel they are very unproductive and a huge time waster if you install it on a site that gets lots of hits. I once installed it on my blog a really long time back and was constantly bombarded with IMs. While I did meet a few interesting readers most users are likely to abuse it.
