Winamp meets ICQ

What other IM networks can, can ICQ, too!
I have found here a plugin for WinAMP that allows to see which tune is currently playing in your ICQ! Rock on! =)

That's a good addition. MSN has that feature too, it reads from Windows Media Player and iTunes. Not sure about Winamp though. It's a cool addition to ICQ.

I notice that ICQ tends to make my full screen game flicker when someone initiates a chat with me even in NA mode! And when I play certain online games that doesn't allow Alt+Tab (due to lame anti-hacking precautions they auto exit the game once you Alt+Tab), ICQ forces its application to take focus.

As my game is no longer in focus, it's anti-hacking mechanism kills the game and I return back to the desktop.

In order to play my game smoothly, I have to shut off ICQ. :(

@Mr Dew: Yes, it's pretty good, although I probably won't use it since it works only in away or N/A status.

ICQ 6 will work better with games, I believe.
