Meebo is a web service that allows users to access several IM (instant messaging) programs from a single webpage. You can think of it as an online messenger program which can simultaneously connect to:

  • Msn Messenger
  • Yahoo Messenger
  • AIM / ICQ
  • Jabber / Gtalk

Meebo has nicely designed and user friendly interface which makes it look very similar to other desktop messengers. As long as you are on broadband you should not feel any speed difference between Meebo and other desktop messengers like Yahoo messenger or MSN. I have tested it out on 128 kbs (which is very low) broadband connection and did not expereince any lag. I did not try it on dial up but can tell you for sure that it is not a good idea.

I find Meebo very helpful when I am travelling or acces web from somewhere other than home. I can easily access all IM programs in one window from any place as long as there is internet connection. Otherwise, I would still give the preference to the locally installed IM programs, but that’s just my thing. However if you prefer an extra browser window instead of 3,4 separate IM programs running on the background then Meebo is for you. Plus it will take some load off you memory.

Some worth mentioning features include:

    (1) Login with one user ID (meebo account) and access all of your mssaging accounts simultaneously.

    (2) Rename your contacts as you want them them to appear on your Buddy list. I have more then 100 contacts and it is quite annoying when people change their nicks very often. With this feature you decide what name will appear for any of your contacts.

    (3) Access chat history for any of your contacts online.

    (4) Some of the popular all-in-one home page services like Netvibes What is Netvibes ? What is Netvibes ? Read More (my favorite) lallow you to inegrate Meebo directly into your home page. This way you can access all IM programs right from your Netvibes page.

That’s all I got for Meebo. There are bunch of other similar services available as well, some of which I may review in the future. Drop me a line if you think there is something better.

    @ Dorina

    Check out some of the other messengers, I am sure at least one of them should work.

    Koolim is a web messenger which enables you to access MSN, Yahoo, AIM, ICQ.
    MSN web messenger may be blocked on your company firewall so KoolIM is an alternative to consider
