Client side

Connection to ICQ using nothing but a web browser.
This is the very heart of our system. A user can use any Java enabled browser on any machine connected to the internet in order to connect to their ICQ account and use all the basic features presented by the ICQ network.

Supporting basic ICQ features through a simple GUI.
Our client supports all the basic ICQ features: sending and receiving messages and maintaining a contact list.

Working within applet security permissions.
It is very important that the applet we produce does not conflict with the applet security permissions so it is indeed runnable on any machine that supports Java, even to the most strict extent.
