I had really bad experience with ICQ and groupchat (if anybody is behind
the firewall, it just does not work).
So, there's Jabber and IRC.
+ There's a client I use, which also runs on Windows.
+ Should work from firewall
- The client I use have very basic groupchat abilities
(no easy save, for example)
+ Pretty much widespread
- I don't know about Windows clients
- I have no idea about servers, their setup,
Maybe, we can all try with Jabber.
The client I talk about is called Psi (http://psi.sf.net).
After installing, you'd have to select a server to register
with. Two alternatives are
"jabber.org" and "amessage.de". After registering, click on
"add contact in menu" and add "vladimir_prus_at_[hidden]".
I can then tell about groupchat.
