- Meebo. Upon arrival at the website, you have the option of signing into one of your accounts or using a universal meeboid and password to access all of your accounts under one interface. By using the meeboid, you can save your conversations to view later, set a personalized avatar and customize the colors of the web interface. Conference chatting is available. Meebo also features the "meebo me" widget which can be added to any website - and does not require any registration. ★★★★★
- EasyMessenger is another free client that is very easy to use. Unlike Meebo, registration is required. It includes a built-in RSS reader, so you can keep up with your feeds without having to use a separate program or service. All of your accounts are accessible via the same interface. EasyMessenger does not provide conversation logging or a personalized avatar. ★★★
- KoolIM gives you access to over 20 instant messaging networks, including the big 6. If you have friends in other countries, this web-based instant messaging client is probably your best bet. Registration is optional. There is no conversation logging or personalized avatar. Like EasyMessenger and Meebo, you can have secure conversations. ★★★★
