Tired of having 3-5 IM clients running at once?
Why not try Trillian?
Trillian 3.0 has just been released by Cerulean Studios. It's a FREE chat client that will connect to AIM, MSN messenger, Yahoo! messenger, ICQ and IRC all at once.
It uses a unified buddy list, with icons denoting which service the buddy is on. It's also totally skinable with many skins available free from Cerulean's website. I'm running the "Bored" skin right now.
Trillian will also monitor your email accounts and notifies you when you have new emailWhat did a tornado sound like before freight trains were invented?

You know.. I remember when Trillian first came out. The prog would constantly have problems connecting to MSN or ICQ, but worked fine with AIM. I never used Yahoo or IRC, so don't know how it worked for those. I hope it's a little more reliable now, right?Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition Deneb 3.7GHz Socket AM3 || ASUS M4A89TD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890FX || ASUS EAH6950 Radeon HD 2GB || 16GB Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 1333 || Thermaltake Toughpower W0106RU 700W || WD Blue 500GB || WD Caviar SE16 250GB || Win7 64 || CM Storm Trooper

I like Miranda is better than Trillian.
Available protocols: ICQ, AIM, MSN, Jabber, Yahoo, Gadu-Gadu, Tlen, Netsend, plus can do IRC channels and more
Supported OS: Windows NT4, 95, 98, Me, 2000, XP & 2003.

Miranda is plug-in based so there are a ton of feature available for it and more being developed all the time.

i like the trillian pro version, however wasnt a huge fan of the free version when I tried it.
My favorite features of the multiclient are the message history (old messages pop up in the window after the window has been closed).
Now I've just been using gAIM because it's free/legit, and the same thing whether I'm in windows or linux.
Nice avatar by the way, Out.

i happen to think trillian 3.0 is really worth trying out, but that's just one mad redhatter's opinion.
while in previous versions, there's been a difference between the free and pro versions, 3.0 is released on the same code-base. essentially, the pro version just unlocks features not available in the free version. that's a big difference to how they did it previously.

Trillian used to have problems with your buddy lists. Particularly if you used it on more than one machine. If you changed your list on one, the other would put it back and crap like that. I finally gave up on it because of that.My computer is bigger than yours!
