Meebo - an online instant messaging interface that was pretty solid - will be shutting down now that it's been acquired by Google.

Meebo, which began in 2005 as a browser based instant messaging program, will now cease most of its services by next month. The IM service supported various IM platforms such as Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, AIM, ICQ, MySpaceIM, Facebook Chat, Google Talk, CafeMom and others. The announcement comes after Google’s acquisition of Meebo for $100 million – which was made just less than a week ago.


The timeline's quite something, and it's a shame to see them closed up; if you're working in an internet cafe, services like Meebo make communication a lot easier.
