Why Did Google Remove AIM From Gmail?

I logged into Gmail from work this morning, and guess what I found? The AIM option is missing from GTalk! I know Google and AOL was doing something, but I had no idea they were going to remove it completely! After some research I discovered that I can add my AOL buddies to GTalk and AOL even provided a tool to import all the buddies. But they are missing the point! I don’t want to use GTalk, I want to use AIM! The only reason I use GTalk in Gmail is because of the browser based AIM support. I guess I won’t be keeping my Gmail open all day anymore. Anyone know a good browser based AIM client?
