TipMonkies – Web-based IM client roundup Oct 6 2005
Nice round-up of web-based IM clients.
A few days ago I wrote about Meebo and people took an interest to the web-based IM client, so I decided to do a quick roundup of the available clients. You should have a somewhat modern browser for these to work (IE 5.5, Netscape 7.1, Mozilla 1.0 or higher) but that shouldn’t be a hurdle for anyone. If you can’t install an IM application at work or school, then these web-based solutions should get you your IM fix. This list is by no means definitive, particularly when it comes to Jabber clients, of which there are many, but covers some of the more popular solutions. I’ve decided to exclude any commercial (read: not free) solutions, or those that require you to run them on your own server. Read on for more information!
