XIM (XKit Instant Messenger) comes with XKit 7 and lets you
send instant messages to other XIM users. Your blog URL becomes
your screen name, so there is no need to sign up for anything.
How can I get started?
Add people and you are ready to go.
After installing XKit 7, you'll see the XIM button on your
right sidebar. Click on it and it'll sign you in. Click on the
"Add Person" button, enter someone's URL and if they
have XIM, they will appear on your dashboard with a green box
next to their names. From there, you can click on their name,
type your message and send it.
XIM has several emoticons embedded. If you don't like,
you can turn off emoticons from the XKit control panel.
To remove someone, click on their names on your sidebar while
holding the ALT button on your keyboard.
XIM shows the status of people in a small circle next to their URLs.
