Meebo.com., One of the best web-based instant messaging services recently added a very valuable feature which gives it an edge over other web based messenger services. It added a file transfer feature to the web based application.
We all use various messenger programs through which to communicate with our friends and share files, but until now there was no web messenger application with such a file sharing application incorporated. With this feature added meebo started a new trend, which might prompt others to follow.
To transfer files click on the new icon on your IM window and upload a file, receiver will get a link and he has to click and accept to get the file. Any file under ten megabytes is fair, although each user is restricted to 30 megabytes per month, and Meebo stores files for only four hours after they’re sent. More than 6 million people use Meebo per month, and the median age is 21, More than 140 million messages are sent through Meebo daily, with about 20 million of those going through Meebo Rooms, its chat room service.
The file-sharing service works two different ways. If you’re using Meebo’s own chat protocol, simply click the file-sharing icon in the Meebo chat window, upload the file, and hit return to send. Your friend will see an icon of the file in their chat window that they click on to begin downloading it. This have been the coolest feature added to web based IMs ever, please do give it try. Meebo works for Gtalk, Yahoo, AOL, etc..
