A project created after ICQ
was bought out by AOL
, meant to replace ICQ in case it starts featuring ads. The fears were well-founded; New versions of ICQ2000
feature ads in messages. The project currently seems to be without a home page, at least according to Google
, so it can be assumed that it has either ceased to exist or has been renamed.
Other alternate clients exist, such as KICQ and Miranda ICQ.
