/uses Trill PRo
It does what it says on the tin and has some nifty features.
I used to use trillian, but it sucks IMO.
two cups with piece of string is all i need. no spyware, no ads.
sometimes the string breaks, and i have to walk a while to fix but is ok. in USA you use IM to talk, in russia, IM uses you.
I ignore AIM's faults (5.9 on all my machines, triton sucks). Its simple, does all I need it to, and when someone wants a webcam/mike chat, I switch to yahoo (no problems there either). I am considering GAIM though...but only for a hilarious smiley expansion pack . I tried Trillian, it was nearly impossible to configure and is severely limited in the basic version. But right now I know I spend WAY too much time on the computer, and I'm considering just getting Xfire and deleting everything else yeah, Xfire and games sounds good to me.
gaim is what i use, as well as AIM occasionally
Great information!!! Nice work.
Updated. Comments welcome.
thanks for the screenshots
GAIM= Gay Assimilator Instant Messenger
What you using? I use Gaim, but I'm considering Miranda.
Wow, thats really informative . I think I'll stick with GAIM though...It has transparency controls that look AMAZING in Vista.
I use Gaim ('cause non-GTK apps' systray icon will cause trouble with fbpanel), but sadly I never see when a new message arrives - that's because of fbpanel (it doesn't flash or flicker). Maybe I'll try GNOME Panel sometime...
How could you say that. Trillian sucks resources from the computer! Gaim is lightweight and allows for customization. I love it because it allows for NO POPUPS!
well gaim is a lightweight as thats what its sposed to be...
trillian on the otherhand is still under the useage in 3 connection then aim, msn, or yahoo each. i have my server rig port forwarded and running trillian so i can msg even from school...gotta love it.
If ya p00ter has some meaty balls/enougher power and RAM you can spare the ickle bit more juice it pulls. =P
Do any of these clients (I know Trillian doesn't) allow the user to see custom emoticons from your contacts & receive nudges (both MSN features) for example?
Separate names with a comma.
