When mercury.to returns, it will be better than pluto, but not as good as gold.
From the past history of this website, gleaned from the wayback machine, we learn that Mercury was once a Java-based MSN client, so it was like MSN messenger for instant messaging (IM), but with some extra features. It’s basic IM functions were talking to friends, showing your name or nickname and status, showing a picture of yourself (avatar picture), sending files to each other, showing Away messages, being auto-away when idle, and so on.
It could play some games, watch webcams of your friends, receive and send winks, play songs using winamp.
It had various versions in multiple languages.
In 2008, this website began forwarding all traffic to mercury.im and subsequently, someone else owned it and forwarded it elsewhere. Then in 2014, a different owner, showed a one-page description of the planet Mercury.
