      My favorite IM'ing program would have to be Skype or MSN. I use MSN when I am chatting/typing to my friends friends and I use Skype when my friends and I want to use the webcam, :) What do you guys use?

      MSN or Skype for me. Only a few people I know now use either of these including some friends I have in the states so it's good to have both of these so I can keep in contact with them.

      I almost never IM people any more, but I would have to agree that Skype and MSN are the best. A few summers ago, my boyfriend and I were 1000 miles apart all summer, so we ended up using the video feature from Skype and the sound from MSN. lol

      I dont have a favorite. I use all of them and get most of them on Trillian. I have more members on Aim. MSN is second, followed by gmail talk, then Yahoo, and last is Skype.

      I have used all of those apart from gmail talk, never really had many friends on there that use that as a preferred IM program.

      Skype is OK I have found, can be a pain to work with but once you work with it a little you get to know the ins and outs. AIM was always one that confused me to be honest. I think I only ever used that one once and that was a few years back, never went back since.

      I noticed no one mentioned it, including myself, but when I first started on the internet I used ICQ and so did a lot of other people. I have it now on trillian but never use it.

      Have you tried Google +

      They have the im/text chat feature, VOIP voice chat and webcam feature, all built into one interface.

      I use Google + (VOIP--voice chat) when talking to my best friend in England and hear him very well, just like a phone call and it's free to use.

      Also, there's a neat feature where you can invite more than one friend to a web cam party and have everyone hang out at the same time. It's a good way to reconnect everyone at the same time.

      I have most of the common messengers, including Yahoo messenger, AIM, MSN, Raptr. I prefer to run them simultaneously with Pidgin.
