I turned it on, and immediately off again. First of all, I dislike Meebo because of it's TOS, and this logs us in without a chance to see and choose if we agree to it. For another, the little ad in the left corner for Yellow pages videos or whatever was very annoying and kept drawing the eye. I like the current footer, which lets me see my mail easily. Also, I didn't like that Quick links was no longer the first and foremost thing on the bar. If we could choose which service to sign into on a bottom, or even side bar, and the layout was more convenient, I think I might like the idea, but as it stands, I will not be using it.
I have no friends with this yet, but it seems like a good idea, I think this is much better than previous IM set-ups...
One big problem so far is that every time I click Quick Links, nothing pops up. I had the standard links in the old footer, and I'm using Safari 5.0.3
I like how slick it looks. The quick links works faster than the old toolbar, so that part is less clunky, but it doesn't seem to pop up on the page as quickly. Before, the toolbar loaded with the page, but now the page loads first and then the bar pops up. That part is kind of irritating, but the slickness of it all kind of makes up for it.
And, isn't it collapsible? The down arrow on the right hides it for me. [[Edit: Odd, I don't seem to see the down arrow now that I'm signed in. Huh.]]
Edit: If anyone else has noscript and it isn't working, make sure you enable meebo.
Lovely, it is.
Remove the ads for users who have internal ads or just remove the ad in general.
Make is collapsible much like the current and I would find better use for it.
for that matter work on blending it in as well.
