Editors' Review

+

After nearly two years, Trillian is back to claim its rightful title as king of all chat clients. Version 3 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.

"Trillian Spam IM Problem"

October 22, 2008  |  By dragonflyyyy

 |  Version: Trillian 3.1.7.0

Pros

I like being able to log into MSN and Yahoo messenger in the same application. As far as I'm concerned that's about all Trillian has going for it.

Cons

I get spam IM's constantly with Trillian. The website offers no support for this problem. I've googled it like crazy and there is no solution available anywhere.

Summary

As far as I'm concerned the spam problem makes the program practically unusable.

"Best Multi-protocol chat-client ever"

November 05, 2007  |  By Shaker1978

 |  Version: Trillian 3.1.7.0

Pros

I've been using Trillian for several years now. (ICQ2002 was my last real ICQ. I don't miss a thing, since I dislike terribly overloaded interfaces with 40% of the area full of colors and commercials.

Trillian is functional but still nice looking. All chat-windows accross the different messenger protocols live together in harmony, the history is reliable, background images of each chat-window... very cool!

Cons

Trillian loses the sort-order from time to time and the offline-contact management / grouping could be improved.

"Utter trash, very buggy, not worth the time!"

October 27, 2007  |  By the_dude_2007

 |  Version: Trillian 3.1.7.0

Pros

Trillian is great IF you can get MSN to work properly, and IF you get to stay connected all the time, it says your connected when you really are not. The Trillian forums are a joke too noone wants to help you solve your problems. Just dont bother wasting your time like I have!
