    What sort of chat are folks using now-a-days? Sticking to like facebook/tweets, or kicking it old school with irc/aim, or msn?

    Curious what's in haha :) I myself sign onto MSN occasionally but that's about it.

    I've been utilizing a little app call Digsby.


    I made the mistake of using various IM platforms and having friends on each one that I still keep in contact with. Digsby works well for managing all of that from one application.

    Still Trillian (pro) for me... ICQ/Aim, MSN, GTalk, Jabber, IRC, Yahoo and decent Facebook / Twitter functionality.

    Steam and my community's Mumble server for me mostly

    Along with a bit of MSN and IRC

    Trillian, and Skype, though I'd use Trillian completely if Skype didn't have inane policies regarding their protocol.

    Hmm, going to check out trillian again, I remember using it soo long ago but it seemed far to bulky and glitchy :) new screenshots look nice.

    Also forgot until Dark said it, steam is a primary one

    I recently re-installed Trillian, after ditching MSN's latest bloatware. I'm tempted to go Pro again, but time will tell.

    I haven't signed into AIM for some time, so I can't imagine I'm missed too much on that protocol.

    I've been using Miranda IM for years. It's another multi-protocol program like Trillian, except it's open source.

    Another Trillian 5 here. I'm using the free one, the ads can be a tad annoying.

    Trillian, and Skype

    I love Skype, but it does cause my machine huge issues.

    MSN regularly, Skype when I need to make video chat and Facebook occasionally. Not so much twitter.

    I like Pidgin pretty well and it does very well with all the IM protocols I need (including the archaic SameTime).

    GTalk, AIM, MSN, Yahoo, Skype...in that order. I just reimaged my laptop, so will probably try out Trillian again.

    I have used Trillian since forever. It has me connected to everything. Trillian Pro on my Droid is just as awesome too.

    Skype once in a while everything else seems to be distracting these days .

    Skype mostly, Windows Live Messenger occasionally, and Facebook chat if I see someone on real quick.

    I used to be a Yahoo IM gal, but left that behind when Kier turned me on to Skype. So, when/if I remember to turn it on, it's Skype.
    My twitter app is on all the time.

    Did use MSN Messenger a hell of a lot back in the day, was fun too with headset. Now just boring Twitter.

    Thanks for the tip, I uninstalled Trillian and started using Digsby.. Nice little application, this!
