The main messenger I use is Windows Live Messenger (which will work with yahoo also). I've also used gmail if for some reason I can't get onto Windows live. I have video chat to but I hate it (it takes alot of work to get me to do that). I generally always have it on my other monitor (I run dual monitors). Currently I'm chatting on one monitor and surfing and posting here on the other
i use gmail...well, that's what i use on the rare occasion that IM anyway..
"Most everyone's mad here.
"You may have noticed that I'm not all there myself."
I said other... I use meebo, which is a combo of all of the above.
I use Trillian Astra and have an account with all of the services, but tend to use AIM/YIM/GTalk the most.
I use msn messenger , and now msn messenger for mac. All of my family uses that one to stay connected so that's the one I use. I also use AIM if i want to do a video chat. I can't figure out how to get the webcam to work with messenger for mac.
i use yahoo just becasue i had it all set up for work and i can use it on my phone. but i also use gmail.
Im a google talk fan myself. Seems to have a small footprint and very stable. I like the fact that I can use it on my mac, pc, and iPhone.
I use MSN Live Messenger. I use to use Yahoo Messenger but like the features better in Messenger.
Skupe is my main one but I'm always on Yahoo and MSN too ! Pidgin is a multimessanger Service that is really good that I prefer for other messages it works with Myspace Im, Yahoo,AIM (AOL),MSN, IRC, IRQ, Gmail and much more !
This is a great alternative to be able to mesage people on myspace ( Myspaces default messanger is CRAP )
