Editors' Review

+

After nearly two years, Trillian is back to claim its rightful title as king of all chat clients. Version 3.0 offers a completely overhauled interface, tabbed chatting, enhanced messaging functionality, improved file transfers, and a new Instant Lookup feature. The program offers simultaneous access to the fab-five chat clients: Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger, ICQ, mIRC, and AIM. By importing your passwords, buddy lists, and client preferences into its own interface, Trillian acts as a hub for all your chat traffic.

Installation and setup are simple, and the included features are useful. You can check supported e-mail accounts with one click, view detailed event logs for each client, and, of course, chat. Plus, each supported chat client has options such as video and voice messaging, SMS support, and file transfers. Trillian also offers skin support, although they can be a bit testy to install. While you'll occasionally lose contact with AIM, that's AOL's fault. Credit Trillian for fixing these blocks quickly.

The best thing about Trillian is that it's absolutely free--there's no adware or functionality limitations. So if you need help managing your schizophrenic chatting identity, this puppy's for you.

"Meh... Needs work."

January 20, 2014  |  By G0b0fraggle

 |  Version: Trillian 5.4.0.15

Pros

Connects to many products

Cons

IRC is not very good
Ads are annoying
Adds apps you didn't ask for
hard to tell which app a notification is coming from

Summary

I uninstalled because the IRC setup makes no sense, would autodisconnect from a server that needs no login info that I connect to all the time with mIRC. I couldn't even get to the group setup.
