I worked from home today, and had to use that shit-program ICQ. After about twenty minutes I was fed up, so I went searching for a nice clone. Not only does Trillian take its name from Douglas Adams, but it’s a great ICQ, yahoo messenger, AIM client. It supports a couple of others too, including IRC, but I haven’t tried that. I would say it’s even a tad better than Fire, which I use at work.
