I was going to post that link and call it "And in About F***ing time news:", but ya beat me to it Rick.
This will be good for AOL, and even better for Mac users if Apple incorporates it into iChat. I aam hoping so because while ICQ is great, and AIM is cool, one is a little buggy (and is yet to see a full release for mac) and the other is clogged up with ads, while iChat works just dandy thanks.
I agree. Fire is a great program, and the only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't download/upload your ICQ contacts correctly, so I still have ICQ (3.2b5) still installed... ICQ is also looking prettier and prettier though... all we need to do now is to convince the Windows programmers of ICQ to make an equally pretty version of ICQ for the rest of the world. Maybe then they'd trade their "online messaging only" for both online and offline messages. I can't believe people settle for restrictions like that!
