This week’s freeware was quite easy to choose: it makes communicating with friends and loved ones a breeze and minimises the number of different messaging programs I have to install on my computer.
Trillian is a chat client that supports the MSN, Yahoo! Messenger, AIM, and ICQ platforms. Now, rather than having to install each of these products separately, all you need is Trillian to keep all your user ID data in one small slick package.
The intuitive interface is simple and easy to get to grips with, and for those of you who like them, there are dozens of emoticons to place in your messages. Trillian contains all of the features you’d expect using any of the standalone platforms, and more. It can also be customised to trigger events based on anything happening in the client.
Trillian contains no adware, popups or spyware and will not take up more than 35MB on your hard drive. So if you are sick of having to switch from MSN to Yahoo! depending on who you’re chatting to, save yourself the hassle and download Trillian today!
NB: Trillian Basic is freeware. Trillian Pro has to be paid for, but only contains one extra feature.
