Why imo.im is 2011's Best Web Messenger
Long a purveyor of exciting new concepts and new frontiers, imo.im was one of the first web messengers to introduce Facebook Chat, text messaging, file sharing and Skype video calling to its services.
But, it was this January's imo.im redesign which has made the most difference to its appeal, with a fresh new look and easy-to-use interface. The new imo.im is more inviting, seemingly easier to use, and from the looks of this year's competition, the web messenger setting the bar for innovation.
