have you used any multi email and chat client like digsby which is a full solution for IM ,email plus your social networks solution i was used to digsby until i find Trillian astra. i used Digsby but it some time become too heavy that i ran out of program memory (hang up) having 2gb ram. Trillian is a lite solution for the same kinda work if you are managing email,im and social networks then trillion may be your life saver because it is far better to open a gtalk,skype,twitter client same running at same time than having a concise solution for that.
trilion is in we from last 3 years but the launch of new trillian astra which replaced the trillian 3 is a quite nice move by cerulean studio. the diffrences between the prev and new browsewr are given by cnet as “The differences between the two versions are enumerated here; the short of it is that the extras are nice–but they’re merely extras. You’ll still get the improved performance, and support for mainstream services like Yahoo, AOL, Google, and ICQ. MySpaceIM is supported, and Skype is included, but it requires the program to be running before it can be accessed through Astra–just as Skype does with other multichat applications. It includes POP3 and IMAP account notifications rolled in alongside the Facebook and Web mail notices.”
in first installtion this comes up with two skins
1.trillian cobalt:Companion to the default skin. Clean and simple window optimized for performance. Works well with the new features in Trillian Astra.
2.trillion cordonata:Light in a fog through the looking glass. Fits best with official designs and plugins. Unique and simple interface allows you connect with your friends with fun and style.
