Digsby is the least customizable. IT's got some nice candy features, but is overall in its infancy. That said, I use it on my laptop.

On my main, I use Miranda, which is NOT basic. Miranda is quite possibly the most customizable (if sometimes quirky) messenger out there.

I found pidgin to be limited in its plugins.
