Put Talker On Your Desktop

Talker is mostly a web based application. Web apps have their pros and cons. But some tools provide simple ways to combine best of both worlds in just a few clicks.

We’ve designed Talker to work especially well inside SSB like Fluid and Prism. Instead of just wrapping Talker and making it look like a Desktop app, we actually use features that make Talker even better.
