"Its better than AIM Triton, but I say stick with AIM 5.9"
It feels more like AIM 5.9 than AIM Triton, which is a good thing.
It doesn't install the AOLsoftware.exe process which is a staple with all new AOL softwares.
Has some of the expected AIM 5.9 features that AIM Triton does not.
Includes features which benefit corporate AIM users...namely they made a partnership with the company WebEx, which provides software which allows for a better corporate work environment. My guess is that one service AOL will provide (for a fee of course) through AIM Pro would be WebEx's Link2PC...which is VNC thruogh the web (cool software...I tried it out for free thru AOL Beta).
It has advertisements.
No AIM Ad Hack version exists for AIM Pro.
Lacks some important features which ar staples of AIM 5.9.
A bit slower than AIM 5.9 in terms of load times and such.
There are no real benefits in using this over AIM 5.9 in terms of the home user.
Its a nice AIM client that is designed for the corporate user in mind. Its worth a try for us home users, but it is nothing really special that warrants its use over AIM 5.9.
