So how do you connect with friends and family on all of them without having to download each and every program?
I found the answer in Trillian. It’s a free messaging program that connects you to ALL messaging programs, where you can sign on, simultaneously, and chat with everyone. It even lets you log into Google+, Twitter, and Facebook.
The downside is that you can’t use the IMvironments of Yahoo Messenger, or share in the sounds as AOL offers. It’s a bit simpler for chat, but does include the smilies to share.
For people who want to connect with others who are on different chat programs, try it out- its free!
