      Trillian is a universal instant messenger, meaning it can connect to various instant messenging services. With the Trillian BASIC software, these services are: Aol Instant Messenger, Yahoo Instant Messenger, MSN instant messenger, and Internet Relay Chat. Because of the fact that you can connect to all of these accounts at one time with one buddy list, running this program instead of all three at the same time, processor memory can be saved because you’re only running one program. Not only does this logic seem accurate, but it’s more than that. Running just one instant messenger, such as AIM 6.

      0, takes about 45,000 K memory, running trillian with all 3 (aim/msn/yahoo) signed in, takes about 6,000 K memory. You can obviously see which service is less wearing on the proessor. There are several features with trillian, including just about all of the features of the instant messengers it supports. File sharing is easy, along with


      audio chat.

      Webcam chat is not available on the Trillian Basic software, trillian pro must be purchased to use webcam chat. BASIC FEATURES Trillian has a lot of basic features which the everyday user will be able to figure out. -Away messages: The user can choose any away message for all of the instant messengers running, and can have some accounts be “available” and some be “away”, or any combination of the two. The only downside with away messages on trillian is that you can’t type them out in color or any font faces.

      -Profiles: You can easily change the profiles of any instant messenging service directly from trillian. The only problem here is with an AIM account, you can easily make your profile, however you cannot view html, color, or font face in anyone elses profile. This makes it difficult to view profile links, as well. -Logging: You can choose to log Instant ...


      • messages and chat messages, they are saved as text formats, which normally open up with notepad when you right click on a contact and click view contact history, or click on the icon from the window with which you\’re talking to them on.

        -Time Stamps: As with any instant messaging program, you can choose to have time stamps, either in universal time or synchronized to the time on your machine. -Skins!: The user can change the skin of the chat windows, buddy list windows, buttons, away messages, basically any windows on trillian. this feature has to be one of the best features of trillian, because almost no instant messengers have this feature available. There are hundreds of skins available for anyone to download (no membership required) if the user of trillian goes to www.

        trillian. cc then clicks downloads, and then clicks the skin button at the top. ADVANCED FEATURES There are a few advanced features

        which users can choose to enhance the trillian program even further!

        -Hotkeys: Under advanced options, people who understand programming a little can change around just about everything about trillian. They can easily create their own hotkeys.

        For example: I created one that when i press cntrl shift I, my status is sent to invisible, and when I press cntrl shift B, My status’s are all sent to “back”, meaning people can see me and contact me. -There aren’t any other advanced options, just creating new accounts, which is pretty much self explainable. It’s almost impossible to describe how much I love trillian. I can’t wait for the new version to come out, (trillian astra) which was supposed to be available back in 2006, and is still not out.

        However, this version is still in the process of being released, and can be viewed at www. trillianastra. cc. I could not be happier with this free version of trillian software, I would recommend it to anyone interested in instant messenging!
