fthe only good thing i remember about ICQ was the excellent File Transfers i could do on it, an ICQ-Plus. made it a sight lot better, MSN/WLM was always sh1t IMO then i discovered IRC

Hopefully in 10 years we'll be looking back at today and saying "Facebook, Twitter? People still use that?"

Personally,
There isn't anyone I know that actually uses an IM anymore! A lot of people may have one installed, but even back when this thing was popular, everyone was always invisible, which to me, basically defeats the purpose of these junk programs!

I've had Miranda installed for eons and do fire it up once in a blue moon, but have NEVER seen anyone online!

I remember ICQ from the very early days of my time online, do people really still use it? I thought it had gone the way of MSN/WL Messenger?

Apparently it's extremely popular in Europe and Russia. But I'm neither in Europe nor Russia, so I can't verify said popularity.

Yep, I remember using the crap out of this back in the mid 90's. I thought it had gone by the wayside as well.

I have it in the form of a Miranda plugin but it's disabled since I only use the AIM and FB protocols to IM.
I can only imaging what a monstrosity this thing has become after so many years.
