Gmail Chat Getting File Transfers Soon

Over at the Google Blog today they've announced new file transfer capabilities in iGoogle and orkut. That's fun! But what I'm most excited about is their promise of file transfer in Gmail.

For now, file transfer works directly in the browser for iGoogle and orkut, allowing you to send files without saving them as attachments in email. It's also compatible with Google Talk software, so you can share with desktop users as well.

There's no word yet on a time frame for when all of this will apply to Gmail, just that it's in the works. They wouldn't tease us like this and leave us hanging, though, would they? Would they? I hate it when all those orkut users get to have something over me. [Official Google Blog via Read Write Web]
