    Its ok. But somewhat obsolete. Yahoo and MSN msgr are kaput. Nobody uses aim or icq. But if for some reason you have some msgr services that this includes, its not bad.

    Pretty good. No adware here, simple interface, easy to use.
    -1 because when I give anyone in my contact list nicknames, then next time I run the program, those names weren't saved... it reverts back to whatever it picks up.

    Great messenger, the amounts of ads on MSN Live is getting stupid, using this is so much better. I also use the Unix version which works well.
