Another Day, another Adobe Air app, that's just the way I like it! I love Meebo, and the only reason I don't use it is that it's a browser based application. That's a bit of a paradox, since that's the whole point of Meebo, but I love the people behind it and love the app, I just need my messenger to be open, but I like to close my browser.
Luckily Adobe Air was built exactly for these needs and a nice person has made us a desktop version of Meebo, called Meebone which acts exactly the same way, but doesn't have the rooms, banners, and stuff that have made Meebo a bit less appealing to me nowadays. There's really not much more to say about this application, log on and use Meebo as you would normally.
To me this is probably the first application which shows the power of Adobe Air. Meebo is a fully browser based application and is taken off your browser seamlessly with it. This means that now people like me who love a browser based apps, but sometimes need desktop power can enjoy the apps they love.
Update: Meebo has been acquired by Google. The majority of services that have been offered by the company are no longer available.
Thank you for being a part of the Meebo community. The team here has loved every minute of the past seven years, and we're honored that you chose to trust Meebo as a place to have conversations and share your interests with friends, family and colleagues.

The program as a result is no longer available.
