ICQ® Versions Currently Available

ICQ comes in two flavours for Windows users, ICQ 6 and ICQ Pro 2003b, if you want to know which version supports what features then check out ICQ's oh so handy ICQ Client Comparison chart (although v6 isn't included at the time of this article), it's worth it's weight in gold and takes the guess work right out of it all for you... if, after some pondering, you're still unsure which version to run with then stress less because ICQ lets you download and install both versions which is oh so dang handy if you switch between the features or you have friends that only use specific versions so if in doubt then double up :)

As per (what seems to be) the "norm" ICQ 3.4 for Mac (see WackyB.info ~ ICQ 3.4 for more information) is sadly lacking the features Windows users get... grumble grumble! but version 3.4 did introduce AOL/AIM and iChat interoperability which I guess is better than a slap in the face with... well, with a completely out of date messenger ;)
