Yeah the latest build of Fire is nice. I hear .29b will be out soon. I compiled my own .29a

Fire is an Mac OS X only client, Trillian is Windows only and they are looking to port it to Mac OS X.

I love using fire, but for now i use ICQ's official client.
Fire is too inconsistent with sending messages. Are the newer builds any better?
I'm talking about sending a message that never gets to its recipient. this problem is mainly with icq, but it has occurred when using AIM and MSN as well...

Last I checked on my PC, Trillian's interface blows, it's cheesy. Is it still a nasty Multiple Document Interface?
All I really do is AIM, IRC... and occasionally I've been known to go on MSN. ICQ software is just.. abhorrent, anymore. So for that I use Adium and Ircle, the two best choices for each. I'm not that much of an idiot that I have to use an "all in one" dumbed-down interface for a couple of different communication methods, thankyouverymuch
