    What are the best alternatives available? :)
    light on resources is a major factor!

    ICQ 6.0 Preview has been released, but I wonder how many people are still using ICQ...:rolleyes:

    Some years ago, my friends will ask me, hey, can I have your ICQ number?

    Nowadays, people will ask, hey, your MSN account is....

    Well if there´s one app I hate it´s MSN/Win Messenger, ugly bloated app. I used to use Easy Message, but it became spyware (well kind off, didn´t trust it anymore) and after that I used IM2, which was very cool, but without any notification they stopped developing it, I mean why not make it open source? Currently I hope that the new Trillian will rock. :rolleyes:
