It’s been a couple of years now, but Meebo, the all-in-one web IM client that I used to use almost exclusively, has been acquired by Google and is effectively shutting down most of its services. I hope this means that Google is merely absorbing their services to incorporate into their own. Meebo was a great service for connecting people online without having them install much of anything. It was simple, effective, and still worth the money apparently. Let’s hope Google does something good with it all.
