One of the really nice things about Meebo is the option to create a single login for access to all of your IM services.

Meebo has a Firefox plug-in that lets it run in a column to the right of your main browser window.  The page itself is open in a tab, but the sidebar lets you know who IMed you when and the first part of the message.  I have to say that alone makes it worthwhile to me.  Plus I can use it wherever I go without installing it.

 And what about eBuddy?

Meebo supports webcam & voice for all clients - but people who you are imming need to open an external link.

my personal favorite is trillian, very lightweight much like the earlier aim clients, the new AIM clients = nasty

Do you use the pro or basic version?

As for most OEM versions being too heavy I couldn't agree more.

basic, I can't see the need for pro.

 

now if I can find like version 2 or 3 of AIM, I'd use it
