Google Hangouts: Not so finished

I'm still struggling to get a hold of Google hangouts. It's supposed to be cool and awesome. But, I found it little annoying at times. Specially, it fails to show the current status of my friends in the list.

This morning I pinged my friend to chat about something. Again, he wasn't shown online. Moments later, he pings me back and a new chat window pops up? Why? Was he using a different ID? NO. Why does it happen?

I'm not sure if I would get a reply on this one. But logically it seems (from the recent behaviour of hangouts) that every chat is part of conversation ID (when they were busy copying others). So, a different conversation ID, leads to a new chat window. 

But should that be a conversation ID? I don't think so.



Another annoyance is that in open chat windows, if I'm switching between (browser) tabs, the cursor stays there, but the chat is scrolled back up and it shows, 1 new message. If you really wanna show 1 new message, show me where I was. Why scroll back?

For the enthusiasts, I'm running chrome 30.0.1599.114 on a Linux Mint 15 based on 12.04 Ubuntu LTS on a Asus 1201T machine.
