Replace Windows/MSN Messenger
Is there a good (free) replacement for the Windows/MSN Messenger program?
Yes. I like to work with a cool piece of software called Miranda IM.
Miranda IM is a smaller, faster, easier instant messenger with support for multiple protocols. Miranda IM is designed to be resource efficient and easy to use while still providing many features including support for AIM, Jabber, ICQ, IRC, MSN, Yahoo, and more. Supplemented by hundreds of plugins and other content, Miranda IM is very flexible and provides many avenues for customization.
- Available protocols – ICQ, AIM, MSN, Jabber, Yahoo, Gadu-Gadu, Tlen, Netsend, and more
- Supported OS – Windows 95, 98, Me, NT4, 2000 & XP
- License – Miranda IM is published under the GPL license and is free of charge.
Here are some screenshots of Miranda:
Miranda IM is now offering version 0.5.1 You can download the file from HERE (1.02mb)
BTW, if you don’t know by now, you may want to know that a newer version of the Microsoft MSN Messenger client is available. It is labeled Windows Live Messenger for Windows XP, W2K and Windows Server 2003. You can download it from the Update Windows Messenger page.
