If the answer to all these is ‘YES’ then Pandion is the perfect solution for you.
Pandion is an instant messaging client for XMPP and Jabber networks; however, it allows you to login in to your Gmail chat using your Gmail ID and password. There is absolutely no setting changes or registration required to use it. It is free and most adorable because you can actually use various fonts with colors instantaneously along with a host of smilies. You can also download and install various environments available with Pandion. Pandion also comes with various setting options and preferences that you can alter according to your own requirements. Along with all these features Pandion gives you popup messages when someone in your contact list comes online, unlike Gtalk.
Let’s come out of the black and blue patches in Gtalk and Gmail chat into this Instant Messenger named Pandion. I know that Google will soon introduce all these options in Gtalk and/or in Gmail chat widget; but until they come out with an extended version, let us enjoy Pandion to the fullest!

NOTE: Pandion is not new for people who have used Jabber in their offices (mainly). The only drawback that I could figure out is that you cannot create a common room to chat in, like conference option in various other IMs. Please note that the fonts, colors and smilies will not be visible to the people you chat with who do not use Pandion.
