ICQ (I Seek You) is freely distributed peer-to-peer communication client that supports file transfers, instant messaging, real time chat, e-mail integration, voice messaging, telephony, SMS, and a host of other plug-ins. User connections are validated through the ICQ server, and optionally published in member directories, where they are searchable and can also provide information on a member's online status. In addition to an FAQ and new user guidebooks, ICQ offers an extensive set of developers tools, including groupware for system administrators, web site enhancement tools, and application development tools for modifying or creating new plug-ins and interfaces based on the ICQ API.
