I mainly use Digsby, but that's only because of the support for Facebook Chat, Facebook alerts and Gmail alerts. I much prefer Windows Live Messenger as a client, it just isn't suited to my needs :(

WLM, is the only IM network I feel like I want to be connected to most of the time.

I really like Google Chat . But in my country ( VietNam ) Yahoo is the best :| Maybe when Google Wave outs, it'll make a big difference :)

WLM can use with Yahoo but i've tested , it's nothing better :| Maybe I'm a big Yahoo user :p

I use Windows Live Messenger; however, I used to use Pidgin IM (for a long while).

I use iChat...lets me speak to my WLM and Google Talk contacts all in the one place. Fits in with the OSX interface too.

Thanks for telling us about Digsby! I'm so downloading it when I get home, it looks amazing!

I find myself using Pidgin more and more these days on both Linux and Windows It's nice having the same interface in both.

Windows Live Messenger over here. I seem to have stopped using any form of messenger in recent times though in favour of Facebook wallposting, which tends to avoid me getting into any kind of conversation with people I don't really talk to.

But that isnt really instant messaging

Thats my point, when I use IM, I'm a WLM kind of guy, but it seems to be falling out of favour with me, and in fact most of my friends in favour of wallposting, which allows you to have a conversation over a longer period of time and avoids all those stupid "Hi, Hw r u 2day?" messages from people I haven't cared about in a long time.
