Meebo the new messaging alternative

After writing about how yahoo messenger can now talk to msn messenger, let's talk a little more about inter-connectivity across all messengers. Yes there have been trillian and jabber, but this one deserves a mention.

Meebo is an Ajax instant messaging client that works with major instant messaging services. It's website allows logging onto AOL, ICQ, Yahoo! Messenger, MSN Messenger, Jabber and Google Talk, eliminating the need for an instant-messaging client on the user's computer. For more details link

There is even a wiki and a blog dedicated to meebo.

Pros :

After you enter your password, it tells you that the password is being encrypted.

Cons :

There is no way to log off on and log on using a different combination of messengers.
You have to close the browser. If someone finds it, please let me know.
Secondly it would be nice if we could reduce the browser to a pop up window so that we don't have to be on the same page all the time.

Overall it mimics Jabber, Gaim and Trillian with a Yahoo messenger kind of feel.
Meebo was listed as one of PCWorld’s Top 100 World Class Products in June 2006.
And in Aug 2006, Meebo was listed as one of the top of Time's Top 50 Coolest Websites for 2006.
