I use Meebo.com as my multi-IM client. I love the clean interface, and the idea that I have all of my IM accounts are available anywhere I go. And I love the fact that Meebo doesn’t hog my CPU & memory the way Adium does. The only thing Meebo is missing is the ability to auto-join a chatroom. I have to join two chatrooms for work every day. Because Meebo’s process is manual, I constantly forget to join and then hear from a variety of co-workers: “Didn’t you see it in the chatroom?!” That is usually followed up by some jab at Meebo.
So what is this manual process?
- Click the join room button
- Select the IM account that needs to join the room
- Type in the room name
- Type in the server for the room name
- Click “Join”
