I could not find even one pro.
It could not even connect to msn. I uninstalled it with Revo, and that was a catastrophe. I had to restore the system because it erased great deal of my reg.
I rarelly write reviews, but this time I felt like it was necessary to do it.
None that I can tell because it didn't work in my operating system.
Not compatible with Windows 7 (64-bit).
Installation went okay. I then chose to add a Yahoo account via the wizard. That went okay. Then after the wizard cended I launched the program, and that's where it faltered. The interface came into view with my account name visible, and then an alert box: 'Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library. Buffer overrun detected! ' the alert went on to advise that the buffer overrun has "corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated."
Update urgently required.
Connects to a decent number of messaging protocols
Looks horrid IMO
Couldn't figure out how to sign in to my accounts (maybe I'm being dumb, but this should be REALLY REALLY intuitive)
There are plenty of other better messaging clients out there. I prefer Digsby and Pidgin for multi-protocol clients and Windows Live Messenger for MSN. Skip this piece of junk.
The interface looks nice. Somewhat familiar to Pidgin users... makes me wonder. Nice minimalistic approach. Everything is well organized.
It doesn't work. Will connect and then you are thrown out again, from MSN and Yahoo and ICQ. ICQ reports obsolete chat client version, while the other networks just disconnect you. Isn't good!

ERROR MESSAGE: PROTOCOL VERSION NOT SUPPORTED BY OUR SERVERS.
WHY DON'T THEY UPDATE THEIR PROTOCOLS TO WORK WITH MSN AND YAHOO? Like all the other chat clients?
If development is dead, then remove it from downloads!
Nice interface, no spyware.Free. Works ok but very buggy from time to time. Still I prefer this over Trillian
Website does not work and the skins page is down. New version 2.0 cannot be downloaded nor new skins.Is the company still there.

They website still doesnt work, and the official download link for 2.0 final (build 268) is broken.
The fact that there is just a blank page and not some bogus search engine indicates that they probably still own the website, they just cut back on like 99.999% of traffic without having an actual page to visit. LOL.
If you want the 2.0 final installer (why you would I dont know, since I saw no improvements over 1.5 anyway) you can download it from Softpedia.com, or FileForum.com (just do a search for it and it will come up...they have in-house links to the download).
Combines all messengers. Free
Have not been able to download the application from IM2s website for the last 4 days. The link to their forum also does not work. Have e-mailed several times, no response, still not fixed. This gives a very unprofessional image.
To use videochat other party must also have IM@, cannot videochat with MSN, Yahoo members.
Well, it is very customizable, the interface has a pleseant feel to it, and i like the way it handles multiple accounts.
they just need to clean the code of it up. it keeps crashing for bogus reasons, or for no reason at all, and this is on a brand new system with a fresh install of xp pro. even the spyware that killed my old system didn't crash as much as this thing does. if they could just get those huge bugs out of it, this would be a great app. until then, i would avoid it like salmonela from a platypus who can't spell.
Has no adwares/spywares...Thats all!
This works the first time when u install this and then it slows down on the very second time..Highly unstable...And u can not put smileys in ur messages as the moment u click on the icon, it freezes ur whole comp.
Needs quite a lot of improvment!!
Another alternative to GAIM and Trillian in the department of multinetwork chat clients.
Not a resource hog.
Buggy as hell.
Lacks a lot of features you can find not only in the official clients, but GAIM and Trillian.
Requires a LOT of time and patience to setup the program to your liking.
IM2 is very easy to use and configure. It saved me from downloading AIM, YIM, and MSN to my computer making me save space. It has nice look and you can download new skins for it. It also gives you the power of tabbed IMing.
I wish that each protocol had it's own seperate window, instead of them having them all in one window. You can't download skins for the current version yet. I want to get a new skin, but it's taking way too long!
