Meebo takes the risk out of IM
Meebo is a service I've following and using for quite some time. It's a web site that allows you to open up all your instant messaging accounts at the same time. When you log in to Meebo, it logs you into all your IM accounts. Obviously, you need an account with each provider and you need to tell Meebo your user name and password.
What I like about Meebo is that it does not install into your operating system. This greatly reduces security concerns and it means that you can use any computer with an Internet browser. Of course, advanced features, such as voice and video do not work.
If you're interested in managing all your IM accounts while reducing security risks and CPU drain, this is the service for you. And, it's free.
