Gmail invisible status

A few days ago we mentioned how one can control their status in Google Talk (the desktop application). Today there was another little nice surprise for us, straight from Google this time.

Using Gmail and the built-in Google Talk you can now appear as invisible, meaning that your fellow GTalkers will not be able to see you online. You can still, however, initiate conversations with someone even though you will appear as invisible to everyone (including the person you talk to).

Yet another way to avoid someone online! One note though. Why is Google so slow on developing Google Talk into a full IM client? They keep releasing minor updates to it and at a very slow pace!
