I use GAIM. It's nice-looking, and the alias feature is fun. But sometimes it doesn't work properly all the time. Shrug. It might be user-end. At any rate, it's nothing that isn't very easy to live with.

Personally, I prefer Miranda IM. It's light and doesn't take up a lot of resources like Trillian does.

To pimp my Miranda set up...



second, which one do you prefer?
If I had to choose between the two, I'd choose gAIM.

Just to clarify, Trillian does not charge to access Yahoo IM.
However, if you want certain advanced features to work, like video chat, you need to buy the pro version.
Most of the features of Y!IM are present in the free standard version.

GAIM is nice, but I still like Trillian best.

I'm more of a GAIM fan. Trillian is a cluttered mess, IMO.
