Looking for small IM Client

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a small really lightweight Instant Messenger Client that I could put on a usb drive and run on any computer without installing anything or updating anything and that doesn't make any registry entries. It also it has to work for MSN.

Pidgin Portable is a multi-protocol instant messaging client that works with AOL Instant Messenger, ICQ, MSN Messenger, Yahoo! and more. You can log into multiple networks all with the same program. All your IM settings and buddy lists are self-contained, so it leaves no personal information behind on the machine you run it on.

why dont you just use www.meebo.com.

It is a web based service that can be run from any PC that you can log into with many of the popular IMs like AIM, MSN, Google & Yahoo.
