If you get a message from someone in Gmail and you see it online in Gmail Chat, you can click "Reply by Chat" at the bottom of the message instead of Replying by mail. This useful if your reply is short or you want to make sure it has a big visibility.
When using this feature, the replies are grouped with conversations.
