Projects / kicq


kicq is an ICQ client specifically designed for the KDE desktop. It has a simple, clean interface very similar to the original Windows ICQ client, and includes all of the most commonly used ICQ features such as messaging, real-time chat, and file transfer. It features complete message history, a New ICQ User registration window, multiple ICQ accounts, SOCKS5 proxy inline support, configurable sound events, Cyrillic koi8-r/cp1251 recoding, and support for the ICQ UDP v5 and ICQ TCP v2 protocols.
