Eirenarch says:

There is a reason mail.ru bought ICQ. It is still quite popular in Russia and moderately popular in Eastern Europe. I use it daily (on Miranda with 3 other protocols)

Dagolara says:

Yesterday, have had it since close to launch and still use it today.

Yeah, in Russia and former Soviet Republics ICQ is still dominant i think.
I have a 6-digit account on it!!! :-)

ICQ is still alive? well, that was really unexpected, i thought it had seen its last days...

I still use it.  Most of my friends are Russian and I am always travelling between Seattle and Saint Petersburg.  Will be nice having ICQ on my phone to communicate with Russians.  It is still the largest IM service in that country.

Who's the little kid in the pic?

chsoriano says:

Ha! Thank you, I thought surely I wouldn't be the only person asking who the (looks like) 14 year old with the mic was...

mixen says:

That's funny to see what people think about yourself in 27 years old. Hopefully it will be the same after decades :)

zbend says:

Justin Bieber's younger brother owns ICQ didn't you know that? :)

ahardin says:

I haven't used it in close to 10 years, but I still have my ICQ number memorized.

wetworker says:

I've been saving my ICQ number for all these years just for this reason.

Strixan says:

I don't know if this is such a win. From my experience official ICQ clients are crappy since... well since always and I'm using ICQ thanks to the Trillian.

I am sorry, but that kid looks like he is about to read of Bingo numbers to a bunch of old ladies.

turdsamich says:

haha ICQ is this a joke?  Back to the Future??

At last!! Yes,you're right: mail.ru agent and ICQ are the most popular services in RF of such a kind. We've been waiting it for a so long time!
Ну наконец-то,правда? Видимо,разработчики хорошо постарались,раз адаптировали так долго
