    "This is not the 'current' version."

    June 19, 2011  |   By croupiac

    Pros

    Works as well as ICQ itself does.

    Cons

    Archaic and irrelevant.

    Summary

    Version 3.4 is not the latest version. The ICQ site has a newer, more modern version available, but unfortunately it requires the appalling Adobe AIR framework, as it's written in Flash (so it's not *really* a Mac version, it's pretty much just their web version on the desktop).

    However it still does not support video or any of the other features that have been added to the Windows version in the 8 years since the previous Mac version was released. Aside from adding Facebook support, which pretty much everything supports, so trying to morph ICQ into a Facebook client is as pointless as using ICQ itself). So, it's newer, but it's still a very limited application. Even Yahoo's stagnated YIM is more feature-rich, despite being older than the new-gen ICQ Mac client.

    And really, who uses ICQ any more?
