Meebo release XX: check it out
In case you don’t know already, Meebo is a beautiful web-based application that allows you to log into your Instant Messengers without installing a client application. I found out about it last November, a day after having to install Yahoo! Messenger on my then parents’ PC to get a tiny bit of technical support from Australia (Rob).
Yesterday saw its 20th release, and it’s grin-worthily neat. First of all, its look and feel is more rounded and professional, with a great log-in screen and an enhanced icon system to signify the numerous IM variants. But possibly the most significant development is the ability to pop-out windows, including the main buddy-list itself. These appear as new Firefox (or IE for all you heathens) windows. This may seem like a minor development, but it truly takes the application to the next level, and it now sits squarely alongside its thick-client competitors.
My only significant outstanding requirement is the ability to group friends together, specifically a single person’s multiple IM variants.
Nothing to download, so no reason not to check it out. You’ll love it!
