trillian, pidgin (formerly gaim), miranda, etc. are "mutli-protocol instant messenger" programs. multi-protocol simply means you have ALL your aim, yahoo, icq, msn, gtalk, irc, etc buddies IN ONE LIST using ONE PROGRAM. instead of having yahoo's program, and aim's program and msn's program on your desktop; you just have ONE PROGRAM that puts all your buddies from all the different companies in one list. Plus these programs don't have ads or spyware or any of the ugly gook that the normal aim and yahoo and msn comes with. They all have skins and a ton of customization tools. I've been using gaim/pidgin for five years and used trillian for two before that. Looking at aol instant messenger makes me want to vomit.

Most of my friends are on MSN so this is a real treat for me. :D Thank goodness. I hate those ads.

I love Trillian. There are others out there but that has been the best for me. I also use Shape Services for my mobile phone. It does the same as Trillian.

why would you bother with all this when you should be using pidgin or trillian anyway?
