Meebo is a multi-network instant-message service that runs in your browser window. It emulates the look and feel of similar software services, yet requires no download or installation. You can also "pop out" your chat windows and buddy list, just in case you want to escape the confines of your browser.

In 2007, Meebo launched an application platform, letting developers create applications and services that tie into Meebo's chat architecture. The service also offers "Rooms," which makes it easy for users to share media and Web sites.

Beyond the browser, Meebo can be found on mobile devices. There's a mobile-friendly version of its site, as well as a standalone app for Android phones. The company is also set to launch an application for iPhone users that will let them connect to multiple chat clients, and IM from their phones.
