Be Invisible in Gmail Chat

Finally, there is a way for you to hide from your friends when you are checking your Gmail. You can now be 'invisible' in Gmail Chat, the built in IM tool in Gmail. Just like the invisible (or some like to call it Appear Offline) in other IM, you can see others status while you will be shown as offline to your contacts. You can still be able to initiate a conversation. However, if you are using Google Talk, the desktop application, at the same time, you would see this error message:
The invisible function only works for Gmail. And there is no official word from Google yet.
