Meebo, everyone’s favorite Web 2.0 Instant Messaging client just got better this week. For those not familiar with this lovely service, Meebo is a free Web based instant messaging client that combines the most popular IM services (eg. Yahoo, MSN, ICQ, GTalk etc), making them all accessible from a single location.
The most visible upgrades center around design. The whole site looks more polished and more inviting than ever before. Going beyond that Meebo now has:
- the ability to move buddies between groups by simply dragging and dropping them
- the ability to pop up conversations into a complete browser window
- an individual sign on and off where now you can manage your screen names one-by-one
- better optimization to go faster, and feels more robust than ever
Although Meebo is still in its Alpha stage, in my view, it’s already by far the best web based IM client out there.
