    Digsby just died on me. Must be server issues on their end idk.

    Anyone have alternatives?

    Had a lot of problems with Pidgin. I'll check out Trillian.

    I haven't used Pidgin in a while and I had problems off and on with it. My preferred choice is Trillian and what I use.

    Trillian looks good. Installing now.

    Anything I should know about it?

    Not that I can think of the moment.

    Perfect. Got the UI how I like it, uses barely any resources (less than Digsby even) and I've got it forced with EMET.

    Thanks.

    I have used Trillian a long time and like it. But for some reason I remember going back to version 4.2 after trying version 5 for a while. So if 5 does not suit you maybe try 4.2.

    Digsby hasn't been updated since July, and the blog much less than that, April to be precise. Trillian 5 is definitely more memory friendly than Digsby.
