New Google Talk uses Internet Explorer Browser Plugin to Display Messages

The new google talk uses an internet explorer plugin to display messages.

If you do not have the new google talk you can download it here.

Basically the way I did this was I made my own theme (A guide that I wrote about making/editing themes in google talk is here) and I added in some code into the html file that displays the messages (Outgoing/Content.html) to display an image.

The exact code was this:

<div class='icon'>
<div style='height:1px;filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src="")'>

This code referenced an image on one of my other sites IPNow.Org which displayed an image of the current browser based on the useragent.

The image in the screenshot clearly shows that google is using the internet explorer plugin to display their messages.
