Short post! I just bumped into this feature of the Windows Live Messenger application which enables you to actually add a web-based messenger to your site or blog.

Check out http://settings.messenger.live.com/applications/websettings.aspx to create one for yourself.

First off, click the little green MSN-guy (it’s green if the person is online)
getlive1

You’ll get some dialogs asking you for either your Live Passport or if you’d like to be anonymous and then you need to enter a verification code. After that, you’ll see the dialog below in a browser window, being able to chat with the person. If I’m online, you can try it out!
