Miranda & Trillian are instant messenger clients. Both supports IRC, AIM, ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo! Messenger.

Wow, I would actually say neither. I used to Trillian, but I couldn't DC (Direct Connect) with my friends and I need to do that alot in my line of work :).

If I had to choose between one of them though I would probably go with Miranda even though I have never heard of it simply because I am always up for trying something new instead of using something I didn't like.

trillian gets my vote.. i havent tried the latest release of miranda.. i used a nightly version of it b4 it was final and i wasnt impressed with the ram usage and features. i found it used around the same and quite often (even with a final release i used prior to the nightly) it used more ram then trillian does. trillian uses less than msn messenger for me and for that reason alone i was converted over. beause now people can contact me on jabber, yim, msn and icq all of which i ahve accounts for witout problems.

btw incase you didnt notice form my post.. trillian also supports jabber but with a plugin. which isnt really much diff to miranda as its all plugin based anyway.

i think miranda shows A LOT of promise.. but then agian trillian is in great need of a major update and hopefully that will come without waiting say another year or something.

trillian has some great skins and its not hard to skin it either.. and for those who say mirands natural win skinning it great it doesnt take much to make a trillian skin with the same looks as miranda would.

i used to be a miranda user but now im trillian.

I wont vote but Ill say what Im using

good old reshacked aim... :D ... absolute perfection... :D

Ive been using trillian since it was first available... I still use trillian 2.013 pro because theyre a good company to support... :P

I dont use my hotmail accounts on msn messenger or my yahoo accounts on yahoo messenger

too bad google hasnt made an im client yet... than I could actually put my gmail account to some use... theyll probably make an im program anyway

Ive been using miranda since it first went public... came in handy when I was on campus... fits on anything... its been going through a lot lately... its a great program tho... because its modular and only uses what you want or need itll probably end up being pretty popular... if you havent tried it you definitely should... experiment with it and you probably wont be disappointed

I only use MSN messenger. I have used Yahoo! and Trillian before though. So in this case I vote for Trillian Pro.
