Question Is There A Program That Will Allow Me To Use Multiple IM Accounts At Once?

So like most I have an AIM, MSN, Yahoo, and Google Talk....is there a program where I can just login to them all so I don't have to have 1023894928 windows open at once?

Trillian http://www.trillian.im/download/ , I haven't used it in years, but it worked when I did.

There's a free and pro version. Compare https://www.trillian.im/buy/index.php/introduction

----

There is also pidgin and meebo you can try out as well. I like pidgin

I prefer pidgin over trillian. way less bloated

Additional Comment:

does meebo actually have an app or is it just web based?

I'd rather forget it, now it's so crappy and when you install it tries to install all sorts of crap. Yes I know you can say no, but its just really annoying.

For mac you can use adium, I'm not sure if pidgin supports mobileme but it might with a bit of hacking. You can probably compile pidgin for mac too (it's open source), but i'm not certain.




Also meebo is 95% web based, you can download a tray app and such but eh it really is just web based. For a web based chat system, it's quite effective, though.

Awesome, the wife is now using Adium, and it seems to be working great thanks!

+2 on pidgin. I believe trillian is not free (although I have not tried any recent version so don't take my word for it.)

I also use adium in my MBP and I like it better than pidgin, although pidgin is actually the closest thing to adium I found and that is why I recommend it anyways.
