    I was going to say, I highly doubt google has spyware/popups in their services ;)


    And supposedly it will interface with other messengers after beta release (just like trillium).

    trillian owns you. all my messengers in one.

    second.. AOL is losing something to the tune of 220,000 members (subscribers) per quarter. With those numbers, i can't see AOL / AIM sticking around for ever

    anybody have links for GAIM? I love trillian... I installed google talk, and checked it out... It was okay at best... But one thing i noticed... its TINY... like... NO memory, NO space, runs FAST... which is what I like... Especially with as bad as Lotus Blows dogs my machine down.

    God this is WIERD. You can close a conversation, then open it again and it picks up from where it left off ? And what the hell is the point of searching your contact list ? I can find the letters "STE" in my list, and open it's window.

    Yay.

    I hope they pick up a file send / webcam soon. www.nudewebcamnerds.com isn't paying me what I deserve.

    I like GAIM, but the windows port is just plain ugly. What I did is I switched back to AIM, and used one of those win32 resource editors to manually remove the little banner window at the top. Ad-free official AIM client. :)
