Nice to have alternative messaging clients, although I do not quite understand what the added value of this one is. On the negative site, back in 2015, the Trillian servers experienced a data breach, which was found out in July next year. I haven't used the app since then, but clearly, attempts to log in onto the Trillian website to update the password end in failure: the username isn't recognised. Basically, My and every Trillian user's data was stolen, and - if that's not bad enough - accounts are deleted or login data altered. Nice, Trillian!

Using this on a Mac and there's no way to view my existing contacts. I think the developers forgot to put that button in the program (?) because I can receive messages but I know I've accepted dozens of contact requests from my colleagues at work, and I still have no way of looking at who my contacts are or messaging any of them. My only way is to wait for them to message me and I can reply, but I can't message out of Trillian on a Mac given the current UI. If anyone can figure out how to get contacts to display on a Mac for this program plz let me know...

One of the best, IM clients out there. I am using it for all my devices, and Win PC as well. One master account for all IM accounts, history in the cloud, perfect!

Great program for different IM protocols and computer platforms with cloud history. Just what I need for Windows at home and Mac at work.

The official webpage of Trillian is misleading since it states Skype support which is NOT TRUE for the Mac version. And it's not the only feature missing in comparison to other platforms. Make sure you try the free adware release before you consider to buy Trillian, you might be very disappointed otherwise.

It prevents Firefox from being clicked if Firefox is below Trillian. I can't bring it forward with Trillian open.

Nice vertical tabs, but... about 50% of my contacts have no icon/avatar. So the only thing I see in the tabs is the blank icon with no name. Not really though-out.

Great app, but it seems to have a major problem... I couldn't find a way to really disconnect. It auto logins the accounts without asking for the passwords, am I right? It's a great problem when you share the mac with other fellows.... Tried changing the user or disconnecting each account, but don't works.... privacy fail?!?

This text chat app is most excellent and is a welcome replacement for Adium which unfortunately no longer works for me as it once did. I really don't care about video so that's not a problem. It also connects with Facebook and offers a far superior text chat experience than Facebook's native text chat offering.

Missing cam support, same as in Adium. Micro$oft Me$$enger, $kype and iChat can do it. Why is that so difficult for T(h)rillian and Adium?

There once was ... a time when Trillian was an interesting programme. But that was like a decade ago and I - can't really explain why - was using a Windows PC back then. For the Windows thing I sincerely apologize. Also there's Adium now. Cheers

Great update with nice facebook and twitter mini interfaces built in. The thing I still miss from the Windows one is the ability to check and delete emails from the program, but Adium doesn't have it either.

Downloaded Trillian to see if it would work as a replacement for Adium. I set up the Astra account and then signed into Trillian. I added my AIM account and tried to connect but it just sat there doing nothing. I tried everything I could think of but it never did anything but sit there. it never connected to anything. Very disappointing. It's already in the Trash.
