What is gaim? It's an open source software which combines ICQ, Yahoo, MSN, IRC, and many other IMs. I just tried it yesterday and I find it quite cool. The fact that a new version comes up every week brings hope. Currently it's functionality is somewhat limited such as file transfer, SMS, MSN Display pic, and other integration with the IM accounts.

On the bright side though, I get to organise my yahoo + icq + MSN contacts into groups and I can chat with them by just using one IM software. The interface is great. The loading is fast. The memory usage is low. I'm getting 3 in 1 using 1's resource. Kudos to the developers for GAIM as I really love the interface. Simple yet friendly.
