Hey mate, wicked idea for a blog. I love IM and it still confuses me! So, Trillian.
Can you chat to your MSN and Yahoo contacts at the same time then?

Ooh, maybe you should cover web based Messengers as well? I use it at work as we cant download MSN Messenger.

Yes, you can chat to any of those (Yahoo,MSN,ICQ,IRC,AOL) at the same time and that's really useful.

That for the web based messengers is a good idea. I'll write something about them this weekend :-)
