    Let's make a list... :D My company has blocked many, like meebo, ebuddy, MSN, yahoo messenger and yesterday, Skype!!! :wall:

    If you are in the same situation, do try out imo.im. It's not blocked by my company yet. It comes in the form of web-based and windows version too. The windows version feels like web-based too but not that sure. The good thing is, it can be connected to Skype too! :dance:

    Web-based IM

    1) meebo
    2) imo.im
    3) ebuddy
    4) heysan

    Will try heysan out when imo.im get's blocked. :D

    Try getting the IP behind the domain name and enter them directly into the address bar
