If you are talking about being on the browser than yes, it will kill your battery big time.  However, your messenger doesn't really consume the battery.

I believe no more that any application that would run continuously, certainly shouldn't drain all your power. You can stay on and still charge via USB and Power cord.

If you are opening the browser and visiting a web site, when you are done if you just hut the red end key and not actually close out the browser it will continue to run in the background and will seriously drain the battery.  Try it.

It all depends on how much/often the application communicates. If it constantly checks in then it will definatly cause you battery to drain faster. If the application was coded properly (ie. infrequent refresh) this shouldn't be an issue.
