  1. ICQ

    ICQ is an instant messaging computer program that was first developed and popularized by the Israeli company Mirabilis, then bought by America Online, and since April 2010 owned by Group. The first version of the program was released in November 1996 and ICQ became the first Internet-wide instant messaging service, later patenting the technology. AOL acquired Mirabilis on June 8, 1998, for US$287 million in cash up front and $120 million in additional payments over three years. In 2001, ICQ had over 100 million accounts registered. In April 2010, AOL sold ICQ to Digital Sky Technologies for $187.5 million.
