Instant messaging client of choice

A few weeks ago I had written about why I stopped using MSN Messenger as my instant messaging client of choice.
That does it. MSN Messenger is gone from my system and will never come back. RIP. That piece of crap has interfered enough during my chat sessions with colleagues, friend and loved ones.
I have been using Trillian now and am fairly happy with it. What instant messaging software do you use?

Fire.app, a Mac OSX client. I love it, but it doesn't do stuff like file transfer (works one in a hundred times, most of the time it just crashes the app).

MSN sucks.

Usually Mac users swear by the stability of their application so I am surprised to read this.

no, mac users swear by the stability of their OS, no responsibility can be taken for applications. such as MS word, which manages to crash every second second of the day.

Yes - the system, not the applications. When an app crashes, it rarely ever brings the system down with it. In four years on my Powerbook I've had no more than five crashes, if that (of the actual OS).

i had an old blue and white G3, which i installed os X on. it had a damaged and outdated revision of motherboard, it had a faulty stick of ram, and a harddisk with faulty sectors everywhere. yet it managed to get better uptime than my PC ):

thou i did find my PC in the rubbish bin across the road.

Hi UAE web users!
I am about to start a job in UAE and want to know what the current situation is with Skype / MSN Messenger etc. for making voice calls to overseas phones or other computers - are these programmes being blocked in UAE and if so can you recommend a safe alternative I can use (I only really want to make PC - PC calls, not too worried about calling phones).

thanks
J
