Yeah this is really awesome everybody: Meebo, the online IM client. It works with Yahoo!, MSN, Google, AIM, Jabber, and ICQ. It's at, and it's still in alpha, but I've been using it for over a month now and had absolutely no problems! Check it out!

I love it

I've been using it pretty much exclusively on my Mac for months (found out about it on Leo's podcast "Inside the Net"), so I don't have to clutter up the hard drive with installing instant messenger programs. One feature I hope they figure out how to integrate is sending and receiving files.

All in all, I'm very happy with Meebo.

I've been using Meebo for about a month now and it works great for me. (Good thing my boss knows nothing about it) But it can only work in some places. If your company has really though security then it might not work there.

Another good thing...

Another good thing about Meebo is that they are a very small independent company so when there's a bug, it's usually fixed right away and they are adding things all the time. I hope it isn't bought by someone like... say, Google, in their endeavor to create an online OS? Yes. That's my theory.
