I don't bother these days as most of my friends aren't online like they used to be (we've all grown up?).

I usually just text if I want to talk to someone or if they are on Facebook, use FB chat for a while.

I voted "other" as I use Adium. Though, honestly, I hardly get on for IMing anymore as most friends have outgrown IMing and those that still do only use Facebook chat.

i been using Pidgin back when it was called 'GAIM'.

all those official programs are usually bloated where as Pidgin is generally light on resources and has a decent interface.

When I use one, it's typically Pidgin, but more often than not it'll be IRC via mIRC or Irssi, depending on which machine I'm on.

Trillian, without a doubt. Once it gets fresh skinners and graphical experts it'll be the Adium of Windows.

BlackBerry messenger is all I use nowadays. Back a few years when I was still using computer based IM, I used Trillian

WLM (aka MSN)

Although I find it becoming less used, with Facebook around. But many people still use both. I know Facebook isn't an IM "client" but it's IM nonetheless.

I always have Digsby running for AIM, GTalk, Facebook chat, and WLM. But then I usually use Yahoo separately. I still talk to people on all the protocols except ICQ.

Windows Live Messenger. Although, the latest beta is annoying the crap outta me.

Digsby

The main reasons I like it so much are...

In a constant state of development, with regular updates (automatic)

Very fast turnaround when some other service like google, facebook or twitter go and do something like making changes their API

Great communication. If there is a problem with a service, you get a message about it actually telling you what the real problem is, and an eta on when it will be fixed.

At a glance access to multiple email accounts

lots of other cool features http://www.digsby.com/features.php
