Google Chat is awesome, but if you close your Gmail window it also disappears. Chat For Google is an official extension from Google that fixes that by giving you a chat box irrespective of the website you are browsing. It lets you chat with your Gmail and Google+ contacts quickly and easily without actually going to a Google site.
You can also start a hangout or a video chat right from the chat box, or invite somebody for chat. You can set it to sign in as soon as your browser starts and appear as an icon in your icon tray. Most of the features available in a regular Gmail chat are also included with this extension.
- Chat window stays on top even if you browse to other websites.
- Easily start a hangout or a video chat.
- No plugins to download.
