Ahh, Meebo is the Trillian Express of Aim Express.
Aim Express is the Aim Express of Aim, if you catch my meaning.
Very cool, will recommend it for folks that don't balk at using anything not specifically from AOL itself!
Sorry sir, I do not catch your meaning. But meebo is pretty much the best web app to use for logging on to web browsers. Apparently, it's a bit too popular as a lot of work computers block it. Not mine, though!
I used ICQ in the mid 90s, up until about 2001 I guess. My fondest memory of ICQ is people getting all uppity over rumours and fake messages stating ICQ was going to start charging per message. I actually see people joining Facebook groups in 2009 about the same thing happening to that service, so I guess that sort of thing lives on today.
I started using AIM after I heard people talking about / I forgot my ICQ # / I forgot the name and ICQ # of most people I knew after an upgrade or reinstall. I honestly thought people moved on to MSN years ago, but people from the board said it was their chat tool of choice, so now I use that and MSN. By "use AIM and MSN", I mean I have both programs, I'll use AIM at specific times to join a chat (though I use it a bit more now just to randomly see if people I know from here are online) and MSN logs me in when I turn my Xbox on unless I remember to change my options. Almost everyone I talk to from my real life uses these programs very infrequently and I find it easier to message them on facebook.
