Meebo-Another Multiple IM Tool

Meebo is a cool online application that allows you to log onto instant messaging without an instant messaging client on your computer. Meebo currently supports AOL, Yahoo, Google Talk, ICQ, and Jabber.


Creating an account is very fast–a three window wizard that asking you a little information–which then dumps you into a Meebo home page.

Meebo also allows you to enter Meebo rooms and create new rooms in Chat mode.

Because Meebo is browser based and not client based, you can access your instant messaging any place, any where that you have a computer, an Internet connection, and a browser. Think Internet Cafe…

Adium X

I’m an instant messaging junkie. Mostly I use the IM in Skype but I can also be seen on the AOL IM platform through iChat. I know lots of folks that also use GoogleTalk, Yahoo’s IM offering, and so forth. This means, in general, these folks will have many different IM clients open.

Adium (sound like a new cholesterol drug) allows you to access many services in a single client rather than having multiple windows open.

Adium does not support video or audio–no calling home on the cheap using it. However the handiness of NOT having multiple applications seems like it might be good.

Adium is only for MacOS X.
