How many times you faced a situation wherein you are not able to access your favorite instant messenger just because it is blocked at your work place. Also, sometimes it becomes very difficult to manage so many instant messengers at the same time installed in your system. The solution to these problems is simple, Web-based Instant Messengers. They enables you to quickly and easily use basic instant messaging features on a web browser on any computer without installing any software.
This is my favorite web messenger. With imo.im, you can not only access GTalk, Yahoo, Msn, AIM, MySpace and Skype at one place but also these accounts can be easily linked to each other i.e. “A single login for all your IM accounts”. Just by logging in to a linked account, you will automatically be logged into all other accounts, isn’t it great? It also provides the most easy to use web messenger application.
This is perhaps the most popular instant messaging service available over the Internet. The best part of Meebo is that it offers almost every feature of any common desktop messengers that too without any software install. At any point of time, you can connect to as many messaging services as you like without much fuss. Meebo now supports Facebook as well.
Like Meebo, eBuddy is also an online messenger for MSN, Yahoo, Gtalk, Facebook, ICQ, MySpace and AIM (AOL). It offers good services and features and is available as both a web based and mobile version. Only bad thing about eBuddy is that the site is very heavy with lots of advertisements.
KoolIM has got very easy to use and light weight web-based interface. It works even behind a firewall or proxy servers and provides lot many features like any other instant messenger. It supports AIM, MSN, Yahoo, GTalk, ICQ. Soon its going to launch SMS and ringtone support.
ILoveIM lets you stay connected with four major instant messengers available over the Internet i.e. MSN, Yahoo, AOL and GTalk. The passwords which you provide while logging into the services is first encrypted with 1024-bit RSA keys. In fact, most of the web messengers provide this feature of password encryption. With ILoveIM you can sign in with invisible status as well.
Apart from these 5 web messengers, if you are a die hard fan of only MSN or Yahoo, I would rather suggest you to check MSN Web Messenger and Yahoo Web Messenger. MSN and Yahoo both have replicated all the features of their desktop application to web application.
