The interface was slicker, messaging was faster and ICQ was dumped within a year, whereas MSN lasted a good 5-6 years before everyone dropped it (about the same time facebook took off I think)
    ICQ had a good 10 years, it disappeared after the 2008 b2 release, which is probably down to nobody patching the adverts on the message box out of the program

    Your chat logs for Pidgin at least are in the .purple folder. If you don't use Pidgin, well, sucks for you maybe?
