This is total BS! Create an Astra account? Give me a break, like I don't have enough accounts I need to keep track of? Now I need to maintain an Astra account, as well? I don't think so. Back to Adium for me! *DELETE*

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.

qq is only popular in china, hence the billion people using it. like gadu-gadu is popular in poland or sapo is popular in portugal. they're also closed protocols, and qq, at least, is very hard to tame (adium's qq plugin comes close).

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.

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.

Definitely better than the last alpha I had tried. Still needs work though. And it's been such a LONG time. Avatars don't work for me, and for IM, it has no other functions other than text. Meaning, no emoticons, not even the basic default ones.

On the way, but not there... yet. It lacks so many options that one needs to wait to see the true power of Trillian shine. The Astra account has both ups and downs, but in the end - it's there for it's practical solution of all-in-one. File-sending is just as slow as in Adium. You can't change the interface/skin but hey, it's just in alpha-mode. Please come again ;-)

I actually liked the Astra account thing. I was using Trillian on my windows partition and when I installed the Mac version, I just had to enter my Astra user/pass and all my accounts (MSN, Yahoo, Facebook, GTalk) were already configured on the Mac version I just downloaded.

If this connects to AIM/Jabber, why do I have to create an "Astra" account before I can use it? There's no information on the trillian site about what this is, if/how they will store my login information, etc.

Unusually well done. Although it misses many small things like hiding groups, compact contact list, a way to choose with which service you want to initiate a chat, option to disable some of the notification sounds, option to connect upon startup without the need of clicking on my astra account and a few other here and there, I like it very much. Even if it's not identical to iChat, I think it retains its simplicity (which others may dismiss as lack of customizability but I don't). Keep up the good work, you are definitely onto something here.
