Meebo Adds Facebook Chat / By Brad Stone

For Internet users whose instant messaging proclivities span numerous
systems -- AOL's AIM, Yahoo Messenger and Microsoft Messenger, for
example -- Meebo <http://meebo.com/>  is a hugely useful tool. 

Since 2005, the Mountain View, Calif., company has let people log into
multiple messaging systems at the same time from within a Web browser.
It's much easier than opening up the desktop software programs of
several IM systems and logging into them all at once. 

Today, Meebo is getting even more useful, adding the popular Facebook
Chat <http://blog.meebo.com/>  to the list of instant messaging systems
it supports. [snip]
