I’ve used trillian for several years and while it’s not perfect, I think it’s a great app. Otherwise, I take advantage of the internet versions of IM (I don’t use ICQ anymore):

For some reason, AIM has at least four online versions, varying in function and stability. Here they are chronologically:

  • http://aimexpress.oscar.aol.com/aimexpress/launch.adp
  • http://toc.oscar.aol.com/tic.html
  • http://aimexpress.oscar.aol.com/aimexpress/launch.adp (most stable)
  • http://aimexpress.aim.com/ (clone of client version)

Great links J.J. Thank you.

I agree that Trillian seems to be a great application. All the functionality one requires from an IM client is there. Chatting with users of diverse protocols is transparent and seamless. All they gotta do now is add Jabber support!

A decent cross-platform, multi-protocol, open source IM client is Gaim. I’ve been using it for years under both Linux and Windows. With a huge developer and community base it has become a natural choice for people wanting to support oss.

I looked at Gaim James, it looked great but I was put off by the extras that need to be installed (and maintained), namely the GTK+ libraries.

Other than that, it looks like a great IM client.
