KXicq is the KDE ICQ client, KXicq2 is written for KDE 2 and KDE 3, but also works
with other Window Managers like Gnome, Window Maker ( with Docking !) and others.
KXicq2 uses the new ICQ protocol version 7, wich has much less problems that the
old protocol and it can be used behind firewalls ( it can use socks ).

make the GUI as simple and powerfull as possible.
