Best Instant Messenger? [Hive Five Call For Contenders]

24 Lug/09

Instant messaging is a staple of the modern communication toolkit. Once you were locked into using the client provided by the service you preferred, but these days a variety of excellent cross-platform, cross-protocol tools are available for the job.

We visited the topic of instant messaging once before in our Hive Five series, but so much has changed in the interim that we’re returning to get more feedback from the well-versed Lifehacker readership. Since then, Trillian came back on the scene, and Digsby has—rightfully so—taken some flak for including so much crapware in their installation (even though there is a way around it), among other shake ups in the instant messaging arena.

This week we want to hear about your favorite instant messaging client and what features won you over. Cross-platform support? Integration with your favorite video-chat service? The best looking emoticons in town? Slim memory footprint?

Hive Five nominations take place in the comments, where you post your favorite tool for the job. We get hundreds of comments, so to make your nomination clear, please include it at the top of your comment like so: VOTE: Instant Messaging Client. Please don’t include your vote in a reply to another commenter. Instead, make your vote and reply separate comments. If you don’t follow this format, we may not count your vote. To prevent tampering with the results, votes from first-time commenters may not be counted. After you’ve made your nomination, let us know what makes it stand out from the competition.

About the Hive Five: The Hive Five feature series asks readers to answer the most frequently asked question we get: “Which tool is the best?” Once a week we’ll put out a call for contenders looking for the best solution to a certain problem, then YOU tell us your favorite tools to get the job done. Every weekend, we’ll report back with the top five recommendations and give you a chance to vote on which is best. For an example, check out last week’s Hive Five Best GPS Devices.
