Methinks they might have a bit of a trust issue cropping up. Trust is an issue indeed, with that being said, this is very handy dandy! Thanks for the heads up Matt man. Few features missing. I could have really used this while travelling. Ability to set up account rather than having to log in separately for each IM […] Found this via Photo Matt. […] […] Leyendo PhotoMatt descubro Meebo. Es un cliente de mensajerÃa instantÃ¡nea vÃa web. Es decir, a travÃ©s de su sitio web puedes mantener conversaciones sin necesidad de instalarte ningÃºn programa. […] I tried that out last night, It’s pretty great. […] We got a second server up quickly, and the guys at Layer42 got a third server up for us as backup. Turn around time was 6 hours on the new server…thanks Dan! It looks like a lot of folks signed on from work in the a.m., and Photo Matt, Silicon Beat, and Lifehacker, along with many others helped drive users trying meebo out. Thanks so much for all the support you’ve given us with the feedback. […] will it be integrated into a wordpress-like blog? I’m not sure I see the point in meebo, other than a rarely-useful way to log on from restricted computers. It looks nice, and it works, but my interest ends well short of fascination. How is this IM 2.0? Is it because it uses ajax? Needing to leave a browser window open to carry on a conversation (and remain logged in) seems pretty web 0.5 to me. I’d say it’s more or less a pared-back Trillian, run in a browser, with all the limitations that brings with it. IM 2.0 is when I can log in once – to Google Talk, or AIM, or whatever – and talk to someone on any other network. As it stands now, interesting effort, mediocre concept. some people will always be nay-sayers, and others idiots 🙂 meebo is an awsome concept, many people arnt able to install programs on their respective machines for whatever reasons, so haveing a web interface come in real handy, what abou when you goto a friends house who dosent have a specific im service installed, just pull up meebo 🙂 in anycase i too am skeptical to use it tho, due to privacy issues, i dont see any guarentee i can believe that they arnt sjsut harvesting passwords, and that kinda makes me wanna avoid it for now You guyz ever heard of eBuddy? Supports MSN, Yahoo and AIM (AOL). They got a clear private/legal policy. See for yourself… http://www.ebuddy.com Yo, good tip – eBuddy looks and works better than Meebo, and it’s all integratged into one browser! A really good alternative to Meebo. Comments are closed.
