Most people choose an instant messaging (IM) service and stick to it, be it Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live or the rapidly ageing ICQ. Thanks to Google and Facebook, most people don’t even need a service or an application—just a Google email ID or a Facebook profile is enough.
But ubiquitous smartphones and multiple computers have made our conversational lives complicated. Trillian is a great way to sort them out.
Trillian is a free, cross-platform IM application, one that works across PCs, Macs and all manner of smartphones, and synchonrizes your data and conversations across them. On a desktop, it’s a pretty-looking app that’s customizable with many themes and colour schemes. On phones, it’s a sleek, fast replacement for the standard chat clients.
