Not many people of a certain age or olderÂ will own up to a lot of chatting but there’s a reason why so many interfaces – Yahoo IM, AIM, Messenger, Facebook, et cetera – exist. Someone out there is doing it. A lot of it.Â Thanks to internet 2.0 (soon to be 3.0!), we chatterers don’t have to confine ourselves to a single provider, or spread ourselves thin using several pop-outs at any given time.

I highly recommend Google’s Chrome. Especially, since it’s now out of beta.Â It’s super speedy and takes up so little resources. Right now I have FF and Chrome open with about 10 tabs. FF takes up 309 MB ram. Chrome takes up 73 MB of RAM. Plus I love the fact when you open new tab you see your most popular 10 sites. It’s so swift and easy to use. I have the same feeling I did when I first used Firefox.
