Very nice Chat History UI in Sametime

Chat history is one of those things in the past that never got a lot of attention. If you were lucky you could find the directory where they were stored and then use the system text editor (like Notepad) to view them. The new chat history window in Sametime 7.5 is sweet! I love it! It is a traditional three pane window with your contacts on the left (an each name is “live”) the pane to the upper right is your chat list (time date, etc) and the bottom right is the chat transcript with full XHTML.

This interface is one of the reasons many people think chat will replace email. I can easily see enhancements like archiving chats to a secure database or location is coming next…
