Default All-in-one Messenger?

Is there a program yet that combines like AIM, Yahoo, MSN etc etc ALL into 1 messenger service? Cause that would be nice! I thought I saw a post about it on here. I did a search, but didnt find it.

Any help....

There used to be onbe called Trillian. I say used to cause I do not use IM's much any more so have no need for it, biut I would do a search for it. Basically an interface to bring IM, Yahho, ICQ, and AOL were the ones I had at one time and they all imported into it quite nicely.



Edit: Just did a quick search and about half a dozen sites popped up to download it from. Also listed as a viable OS was Vista so it looks like it is still current.

Yes, Trillian still exists and it's a very nice program.

Basically there are two different programs that fit that bill, that are used by most people. One, that has already been listed, is Trillian. The other one is Pidgin. You can have a look at both and see what you like or what your don't like and then go from there.

Cheers!

I use pidgin, never tried Trillian so I can't compare them.
