#Updates: Sometimes meebo gets blocked in office! In that case try following sites which offers similar functionality like meebo!
After posting about different PC-based multi-protocol messenger, its time to turn to web-based multi-protocol messenger. Unfortunately at the time of writing this post i don’t hv many to review.
I know only one of its kind – meebo & don’t feel we’ll ever need to find another.Meebo is a web based IM that lets you log into your IM networks (e.g. GoogleTalk, Yahoo!, MSN, AIM, ICQ, Jabber) from any computer with a browser and internet connection with no firewall issues. It employs technologies (like AJAX) to make it act more like a desktop application, which dramatically improves usability. Many users enjoy the benefits of a native DHTML application, as it does not consume as many system resources as a Java applet (such as ICQ2Go or Yahoo Web Messenger).Moreover u can create a meebo ID, so just type ur user-ID & password once n log into all ur fav messenger.
For publishers, there is a thing called WIDGET that u can directly paste on to ur site code so u can talk to ur site visitors directly!!! U can see live example of this just check-out my sites lower-right corner!
As meebo is web-based it is 100% platform independent!!! At the time of writing this, it does not support following browsers:
IE 7.0 Beta & Beta 2 and Opera 8.53
Q: Supported Browsers???
A: Internet Explorer 5.0+, Firefox, Safari, Slimbrowser, K-Meleon, and Camino
Q: BandWidth Requirement???
A: Higher bandwidth will be better for use but meebo will show-up on dial-up too.(tested)
Q: Charges, Membership Fees?
A: Its free & open-source. Also ads-free!
