Remember AOL, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, even Q-Link? We do too. That's why we're bringing them back.

Let's go back to the basics - when you hoped your modem would connect to the internet, when you changed your away message to tease someone, when you used to chat endlessly with people from all around the world. It's back, baby!

We're working to primarily rebuild the original AIM (AOL Instant Messenger), AOL Desktop, Yahoo and ICQ platforms as close to the originals as possible, and document the entire thing.
