Instant Messaging is one of the shooting stars of the Net, and it is estimated that 60% of Net users will be using Instant Messaging by 2004, with it becoming a tool for business and leisure alike, such are its potential applications. Of course though, just as often as not as with the case of everyone having a mobile phone but aren't all on the same network, with Instant Messaging the same is true. However there is no interconnection with Trillian, but it offers the next best solution, namely supporting various Instant Messaging clients in one. Before using Trillian, I usually had three/four IM programs on the system tray, which clutters up the place, and ... Read the complete review

I have been a user of MSN Messenger service since Version 1.something and it has been one of those programs that I always install on peoples PC's when I work on them, the ability to instantly chat and then the bonus of voice chat for free is awesome. I tried Trillian for the first time on Wednesday 14th November after reading about it on DooYoo and all I can say is wow. The ability to connect to all of the IM's at once is fantastic, I have friends who use all of the more well known clients and I have been trying to get them to use one system for ages as I was having to run 4 or 5 IM's at once, a system drain and an age to boot. Now ... Read the complete review

There are many ways of chatting in real time over the 'net. The most popular method is using an instant messenger (such as ICQ). The less well-known but much older option is IRC (internet relay chat). But what are you to do if you have friends using different IM networks and also want to chat on IRC? Running several clients at once is not only a drain on system resources but is also difficult to manage. Here's where Trillian comes in. It is a single program that integrates the four big IM networks (ICQ, AIM, Yahoo and MSN) and IRC into one interface. I was more than a little sceptical about this, having previously tried Jabber (which does a similar ... Read the complete review

A few years ago, some bright spark came up with instant messaging. Welcome to the new generation. Trillian manages to combine your AOL, MSN, ICQ, Yahoo and even IRC instant messengers into one truly stunning program. This here is a program of WinAmp epic proprtions. You install the program, and then tell it about each of your accounts. You can even tell it to have multiple accounts on any service open - for example I use 2 MSN, 2 ICQ, 1 Yahoo and several IRC accounts at the same time. It will import all your Buddies/Contacts etc from ICQ, MSN etc adn put them all in one big Contact List. Each contact has an icon by their name that tells you which ... Read the complete review

I have been useing Trillian for several months, and have found it to have major problems. A little background on myself and my system first. I am an IT professional with over 15 years experience. My system was 1.4 GHz when I first installed the program, and is not a 1.8 GHz. I first ran it on Windows 98SE, then moved to Windows 2000. Both in 98 and 2000, I noticed occasional lock-ups of my system. But it was after I upgraded that I discovered that the problem was with Trillian. I would watch the CPU useage on my task bar, and would see it suddenly jump from 2% to 100%. After bringing up Task Manager, I would see that Trillian was grabbing 98% of ... Read the complete review
