You don’t need to install any software to use it, so you can chat from any computer – at school, at work, in the library, or overseas.
Web Messenger requires the following:
– An internet connection. 56 Kbps or faster is recommended.
– A web browser. Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or later, running in Microsoft Windows.
– A Windows Live Account. If you have an existing account with Hotmail, Windows Live Messenger or Windows Live Spaces, you can use your user ID and password to log in.
To use Web Messenger on other computers, simply log on to from any computer. In Microsoft Internet Explorer, you can add this site to your favorites by pressing CTRL+D.
The difference between Web Messenger and Windows Live Messenger is that, Windows Live Web Messenger lets you use basic IM features on any computer with an internet connection, without needing to install any software. Windows Live Messenger is a full-featured instant messaging program that you can install on your computer.

MSN Messenger had a standalone web messenger, and then for a while a standalone version of Windows Live Web Messenger was tested, called “messidog”.  Messidog was subsequently built into the Hotmail web interface, and a standalone version disappeared.
