The most popular program for exchanging instant messages. This version differs from other programs for connection with ICQ-servers and has a bright design, games, avatars, visit cards, many decorations and so on. ICQ can help in searching people with common interests, finding new friends, connecting with colleagues or family members independently on their location. ICQ Lite allows users to send or receive messages as well as communicate in the chat mode using web-cameras, play on-line games and transfer different files.

The users of this program have their own contact lists and the system always checks who is on-line from the corresponding ICQ-users. It is possible to choose the desirable status of the user on-line. Being in the active mode, the user can hide, so that only selected people could see him/her, or keep full anonymity. A good option consists in the possibility of chatting with an unlimited number of ICQ-users. ICQ-users can exchange messages instantly and transfer files in real time, but it is possible also to leave messages to those users who are currently off-line. All incoming and outgoing messages, as well as other activities are saved automatically.

The program provides users with a secure access to ICQ with a personal
password. The users can form their own black list, so that the messages from the users included in this list could be ignored automatically. The system supports all the supplements of emailing systems and allows fast checking of the mailbox content. There is a searching engine performing searches among all ICQ-users. Another useful feature is that any Internet user, even without an ICQ-client, may send a message to the ICQ-pager of any ICQ user.
