Already we have an year old Trillian vs. Miranda poll but I think now a fresh poll is required because a lot of changes have occured in these instant messengers during this year.

For reference of the new users I wish to add that Trillian, Miranda and Gaim are multi protocol instant messenger client for Windows which support ICQ, AIM, MSN, Jabber, Yahoo and IRC

Please specify which one is better and why?

Null for me. I still use AIM. Everytime I've tried to send files or pictures through the other clients, it has only caused me stress.

Adium when I'm on mac.
AIM when I'm on Windows.

If you hack AIM its the best messenger out there.

I use Trillian.
My main reasons for choosing this over Miranda and GAIM are:
  • Miranda takes to long to setup
  • GAIM uses far to much memory
  • GAIM doesn't appeal to me other then as a Linux Application
  • Trillian's Design
  • Trillian's IRC Client (I use it a lot and really like it)
  • I have a LifeTime membership for Trillian (I am the Danish translator)

No doubt Trillian is the best but right now I'm impressed with Miranda's transparent Clist
