Subject description: Google tries to add more ads to more 'services'
 

Meebo is being Googlified
http://ibnlive.in.com/news/meebo-to-shut-down-services-on-july-11/265610-11.html

Meeboo is used in Puppy Slacko
- do we have an alternative strategy?
We did use a multiple IRC package that was not stable when using IRC . . . has that been updated?

damn, meebo website was awesome, and my default answer to people using both windows and linux when they ask about IM clients for FB, MSN etc

google will most likely destroy the site in its passion.
(like the new mini vader in starwars revenge of the sith and padmae)

There's quite a push for trillian on linux or web-based

Kool-IM looks like a pretty good substitute, though doesn't appear to use https Sad

How about highlighting the use of

that is what I use on the IRC for the Puppylinux chat.

There is also the secure link for IRC chat
https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=puppylinux
However there are other IM services that people use not just IRC . . .

I made me a Jitsi .pet for personal use in Puppy 520 a while back. I never posted it because it was just to see if I could do it.

For everything else. Like #puppylinux. I use Seamonkey/Iceape Chatzilla feature.

I only talk with close family members also. I am not very out going type of personality lately.
Too much time being taken up in real world stuff and Distro Testing lately
