Meebo Was Bought By Google. It's Shutting Down. Sub_title: Alternatives?
A few of newer puppies come with a link to Meebo as it's defacto IM client.
...However Google bought Meebo and it seems that Google is going to shut them down.
I don't know what Google is going to do with the site or it's technology.
However I think it's time for the puppy community to look elsewhere for cloud apps.
I was really impressed with the Fogger app which was entered into the Ubuntu Appshowdown.
There's been a lack of website2app choices for linux.
It would be nice if any cloud apps don't open a link, but instead as a stand alone program.
It would more impressive and use less ram.
