Chat Client Alternatives (Aim, MSN, Yahoo)
just like the topic says, im looking for a trillian alternative, i recently installed gaim but didn't like it as well.
Is there anything else out there worth mentioning ?
u dont like trillian, BOOO
I assume this is for Windows you are looking for? Go with Miranda[=http//www.miranda-im.org/]Miranda
It has plugins for any network you would ever want to use, and can be configured to behave and look pretty much however you like.
I've been using it for like 6 years, wouldn't use anything else.
Does Miranda allow you to open up two instances? My wife and I both like to be signed on to AIM on our PC.
Adium FTW if you use Mac.

Yup, just tested it and it does allow mulitple instances (using different copies of the program)
If you use aim and want a slimmed down version check out
It's made by AOL still but without all the junk. I haven't tried it yet but looks promising if you don't need all the extras.
gaim, you can sign on to all the networks at once from the same program, and it's not a system resource hog
