Is anyone using, or does anyone know anything about the "Trillian" messenger from ceruleanstudios.com?

Just wondering before I try it.

I use Trillian for all my IM programs. It's very straight forward to install with lots of skining options. I would recommend this program if you're looking to consolidate all your MSN, Yahoo!, and AIM into one program.
Tacos. That is all you ever need know.

Underwhelmed, could you provide more info here? Are you saying that this one program is the equal to all the functions and extras and then some of Yahoo, AIM, and MSN? Just want to understand what Trillian is and does. Thanks. And is it SAFER and CLEANER than AIM, as that is full of baddies and yuckies?

I hear MSN Messenger 6 Plus is hiding spyware also. I have version 6.2 and the uninstall is difficult to do as there is no uninstall feature anywhere on the computer.

Don't see anyone mention ICQ that I've been using for years.

From what I've found out is that Trillian gives you the ability to instant message through Yahoo, AIM, and MSN. It's like all three have been packaged together. As far as the safety, etc., that's what I'm trying to find out.
