Like Meebo, offers you the option to connect to various instant messengers using a simple web interface. lets you connect to the following four popular instant messengers: AIM, Yahoo, MSN and Google Talk.

The service that offers is free and easy to use. Just enter your username and password and select the service that you want to log in to.

It is possible to sign on into more than one account at a time. By using the Link Accounts feature you can link those accounts which has the following result: as soon as you sign in to one account you are automatically logged in to all other linked accounts as well so that you do not need to do so manually for each account.

I personally think that is already a great alternative to Meebo, especially if Meebo has been banned from your network. This new service is surely new enough so that it is unlikely that it is already banned in your network. is still a early alpha but already working fine in my opinion. If you did try let me know how you like the service.

Update: is available and no longer in alpha or beta status. The service is not available as a web service anymore, but also as a mobile client for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Nokia phones.

It supports the following services now: MSN, Facebook Chat, Google Talk, Yahoo, Steam, VKontakte, Jabber, AIM and ICQ.

The developers have added a number of new features to the service besides the already mentioned mobile applications. You can now for instance send voice messages to friends or access the chat history which the service makes available.

Update 2: has just announced on the official company blog that support for all third-party messaging networks will be discontinued. If you use the service for that, you can visit the site to download your history from it before it becomes unavailable.

    Is there anyway that facebook can be added? I absolutely love this – I’ve got everyone together nicely. Video chat is a big advantage, especially coz I’m on Linux.

    Doesn’t work in Chrome, at least not yet.
