Anyone have experience with Trillian?

The program can connect you to ICQ, AIM, MSN, Yahoo and IRC all at once…

Any observations? Concerns? Jess

I’ve never used that program, but personally I like to use Jabber for IM,
it has transports for those same IM services but using a remote server so
the client is very thin unlike ICQ’s multimegabyte install file.

Thanks for your response, Jon. I was wondering if you found JabberIM to be
unreliable when trying to connect to the various services? I read the
reviews for it on cnet and they all seemed disappointed with it.

So far, Trillian has been very reliable, it just lacks a few features that
I look for in an IM. And I was wondering how vulnerable it is. Jess

The only transport I have attempted to use with it has been ICQ which has
not had any real problems, although one of my friends did say they had
trouble adding me to their list, but I think that was a problem with the
ICQ client rather than Jabber.
