Use ICQ2Go with Applet Launcher Apps
I've made this small html file to get ICQ2Go to work using /Applications -> Utilities -> Java -> Applet Launcher. Copy and paste it into a plain text document, and save it with the extension .htm launch it in Applet Launcher.

Note: The <applet archive... line has been broken onto two for narrower display; enter it as one with a single space replacing the line break.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
  <head>
    <title>ICQ2Go</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <applet archive="cy.jar" code="Start" 
    codebase="http://iht-d01.icq.com/iw5" height="632" width="152">
      <param name="flags" value="+i">

Advantages:
  • Quitting your browser no longer kills your ICQ2Go session.
  • More responsive.
  • More stable.
Disadvantages:
  • Sounds do not work and the first message you send in a session will give you a small sound error.
  • URLs will not open. Not in messages nor from the contact list.
Why?:
  • I need AIM ICQ interoperability, and only official clients and iChat provide this. iChat is buggy when logged in via an ICQ account (for now), and ICQ 3.4 for Mac is too unstable.
  • Because I can.
Notes:
  • This still uses the official ICQ2Go client from icq.com.
  • If you need to adjust the width and height of the client, you should change the height and width attributes in the applet element. Both are described in pixels, but DO NOT specify the units.
Enjoy!

Hmm, this isn't quite right. Looks like some editting problems - I don't see the source for the HTML, and the excerpt on the home page cuts short a little.

Sorry about that; Geeklog bit me again. I missed a code tag that it ate during a preview. All better now!
