"Great fully featured IM client."

December 21, 2004  |  By Dachi

 |  Version: Trillian 3.0

Summary

My favorite feature is probably the option to encrypt Trillian to Trillian chat sessions over ICQ and AIM. The one thing I didn't like about Trillian 3 was the default layout was a bit cluttered, a helpful soul on the Trillian boards pointed me to preferences > skins > advanced > minimal that seemed to solve my needs. In general, if you use multiple chat protocols or just don't like the idea of installing anything from AOL on your PC, Trillian is the way to go.

"Nice but Not Good Enough"

February 23, 2005  |  By FishDawg

 |  Version: Trillian 3.0

Pros

Nice product. Allows you to use several services in one product.

Cons

It is always behind in features. The MSN Messenger blows Trillian away. If you want cool features, you need to try MSN.

"good but unable to use non-standard characters"

February 23, 2005  |  By wniehues

 |  Version: Trillian 3.0

Pros

+ all-in-one solution (one program instead of four!)

+ small (no memory hog like ICQ etc.)

+ knows most features of the "original" programs

Cons

- since 3.0 unable to display non-standard characters (like umlauts ÄÖÜß, etc.) which it could before -> really sucks for anyone needing them!

"Beware of the worm!"

February 23, 2005  |  By patriotbarf

 |  Version: Trillian 3.0

Pros

My daughter loves it because it is much easier than having the chat clients separately.

Cons

This program contains a worm called Stator. I have this neat little program called Emco Malware Bouncer that discovered the worm and deleted the whole trillian program to get rid of it. I thought maybe this was a fluke, so I downloaded the program again and ran Malware bouncer again. Malware bouncer detected Stator again and deleted the trillian program again. Download Trillian at your own risk. It is also not supported by Norton Antivirus.

"It's amazing..."

February 21, 2005  |  By Antiware

 |  Version: Trillian 3.0

Pros

1) 5 IMs in 1 2) Uses less memory 3) neat GUI 4) packed with features 5) skins

Cons

Don't complaint about Trillian being bloatware and slowing down your PCs. It's just packed with features, and everyone should have more than enough RAM to handle it. I mean, it's not like it's Norton AV or something, it uses mimimum RAM, and you still complain about that. Come on now! The only problem is it's problem handling international fonts.

"Kool!"

February 21, 2005  |  By oddfoo

 |  Version: Trillian 3.0

Pros

It's aight... I like that I can use all my messenger services into ONE program, and it doesn't slow down my computer like all the other crappy ones.. only thing is I wish I could be using more then ONE msn messenger user at once, and that it's a complicated enough program for people like my folks to use... I have to teach them EVERYTHING lol

Cons

more msn login names!

"I hate it.it is totally confusing, i wish i hadn't gotten rid of my old version"

February 20, 2005  |  By aalikane

 |  Version: Trillian 3.0

Cons

It was confusing. I couldn't figure out how to get my IRC working. I didn't like the skins on the new one. I loved the skins on the old version.... The groups for my contacts were really confusing. i would NEVER recomend this product to anyone.

I couldn't do anything i wanted, and the worst part of it, i had deleted my old version, so i couldn't use it anymore.
