All in one instant messenger
All in one instant messenger –
anyone have a reccomendation on a all in one instat messenger rather than having 4-5 different instant messaging programs. tired of having different aim, msn, yahoo. icq, etc. windows open. whats the best all in one instant messenger trillian, trillian pro, IM2, Instan-t, etc. so what do you guys use and suggest?
I use Gaim personally. But keep in mind that none of thse programs are going to support every function. You get chatting, file transfers etc, but to use webcams or the yahoo games you'll need to load up the actual program.
Gaim is a nifty little thing, though. Free too.
Yeah, GAIM is sweet...plus it is multi-platform. On XP I use Trillian Basic. I see no reason to go Pro on Trillian, especially since they only give you 1 year of upgrade support. Lame!
Kopete on Suse linux is not bad either... too bad it's only for linux
yeah i use trillian and i love it never tried gaim though
I haven't tried Trillian in years, but when I did, it seemed to me that they tried to make it much fancier than it needed to be. The thing I love about Gaim is its simplicity. Gaim has all you need, and nothing more. Its layout and everything is simple, no unneccesary frills. Yet all (well as far as AIM is concerned, haven't used other protocols) the stuff the real software offers is there, and then some.
