Ive used trillian pro 2 for the last four years. The fact that i love the skin for v2 and that it has email notifications for all of my email accounts are the reasons that have kept me using it.

Are there any better choices out there? There's no chance im going back to any one service chat client, and all the ones like gaim are kind of bland. What do you guys use?

AIM, MSN messenger, MIRC, and Xfire. Can someone explain to me what Trillian is, since I've heard of it, but I don't know what it is?

Trillian is an IM client that gives you the ability to log onto, for instance, Yahoo! Messenger, AIM and MSN Messenger at the same time, all through Trillian (so you have less to keep track of).

I myself use MSN Messenger.

My absolute favorite is GAIM (found here. It works with AIM, YIM, and MSN, which are the three I use, and a ton of others. Plus, it has very low system requirements - I can run it (albeit rather slowly) on my P2 @ 233, and it ran great on my P3 @ 866. There are also a lot of addons to it, if you want to download them.

The main reason I got it was because having AIM, YIM, and MSN open on my old main computer (the p3) created a large amount of lag. I'm running Gaim 2.0.0beta3.1 right now. The only problem I've had is that it has a hard time with file transfers. Ah well, that's why I set up a FTP server :).

I just use AIM. I tried to use my AIM buddy list throughTrillian and GAIM, but I've been using AIM for about 5 years so I'm just used to its interface. I'd love to use MSN isntead, but the majority of my friends use AIM, so that's what I stick with.
