Pidgin 2.10.1

Pidgin is a chat program which lets you log in to accounts on multiple chat networks simultaneously. This means that you can be chatting with friends on MSN, talking to a friend on Google Talk, and sitting in a Yahoo chat room all at the same time.

Pidgin runs on Windows, Linux, and other UNIX operating systems.

Pidgin is compatible with the following chat networks out of the box: AIM, ICQ, Google Talk, Jabber/XMPP, MSN Messenger, Yahoo!, Bonjour, Gadu-Gadu, IRC, Novell GroupWise Messenger, QQ, Lotus Sametime, SILC, SIMPLE, MySpaceIM, and Zephyr. It can support many more with plugins.

Pidgin supports many features of these chat networks, such as file transfers, away messages, buddy icons, custom smilies, and typing notifications. Numerous plugins also extend Pidgin's functionality above and beyond the standard features.

Pidgin integrates with the system tray on Windows.

Trillian is way better - it fully supports the Skype protocol, thus a person doesnt need to have skype running any longer

and since i found that i could do that about a week ago, i never had the stupid IM taking up to 100k memory, Trillian uses only 6k

Minus the fact that Trillian has poor file transfer support with WLM, as well as cannot do voice/audio chat. Not to mention the lack of updates over the last month or two.

I am a Pro user of Trillian but I refuse to use it until they get their act together.

im not sending much files so i dont care, neither i talk or video call

With Microsoft opening up Messenger to XMPP, I dont think there is a need for these cross platform IM anymore.
