KXicq2, the ICQ client for KDE2
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 ).

At this moment, KXicq2 is being developed to support the most common ICQ functions and too make the GUI as simple and powerfull as possible.
