MSN rather quietly (I think) released from beta testing its Web Messenger IM interface last week. If you have a desire to do IM from anywhere, any time, even when you’re away from your computer at home or work, this is for you.

Just don’t sue me for feeding your sick electronics addictions, though…

How do I access MSN Web Messenger from another computer?
In one of the web browsers listed above, enter http://webmessenger.msn.com/ in the address bar. In Microsoft Internet Explorer, you can add this site to your favorites by pressing CTRL+D.
 
What is the difference between Web Messenger and Messenger?
MSN Messenger is a fully featured instant messaging program that you install on your own computer or one you have permission to install on. MSN Web Messenger enables you to quickly and easily use basic instant messaging features on a web browser on any computer without installing any software.

Was it only in beta before? I've been using it for a few months at work.

Yes, but I think it was available all over the US and a few other "regions." Probably explains why it was a "quiet" release, at least to us. Seems they could have made a big deal about it, though.

See, now the attribution makes all the difference ;)

As I said, I've been using it (from Canada) for a few months. Glad to see it's gone production. I love it :)
