Trillian Editor's Review

If you are an avid internet user, you'll be having accounts and friends all over Google, Facebook, MySpace, MSN and other such networks. With multiple accounts and probably hundreds of friends distributed over these networks, it becomes cumbersome to manage your social life. Trillian is an instant messenger which incorporates various IM services such as Skype, GTalk,and Yahoo Messenger as well as social networking services like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. In short, it’s an all-in-one application developed by Cerulean Studio swhich helps users to control their online social lives, so to speak.

Trillian can be downloaded free from its official website. Trillian is offered for not only Windows and Mac but for mobile platforms as well. Simply pick your OS and get started with the installation. The installer is fairly small at 20MB. The disk space required for installation is mere 35MB. There are several options for the users during installation process. Also, users must be carefull to not to install additional ad-ware components which are bundled with installation package and get installed along with Trillian.

The new edition features a Windows ribbon-style interface which gives Trillian a neat and simple look. The chat window shows messages in bubbles and simultaneous conversations are tabbed. This makes it easier to manage chat and also avoids unnecessary screen clutter. Toolbars can be hidden to give Trillian a much lighter look.A condensed simple view is also available wherein, status messages and avatars are hidden in your buddy list. You can bundle multiple contact entries for the same person into a single consolidated entry in your contact book. So if your friend has an account at Facebook, Yahoo and Skype as well, you can group it into a single entry and add all these accounts to that particular entry.

After launching Trillian for the first time, you are required to add your accounts. Click on the Trillian button and then on ‘Manage Accounts’. Choose a service and enter your login details. If certain services are unavailable, you can head over to Customizations and then into Plugins tab and check if you can enable those. Using Trillian, you can easily connect to multiple messaging services simultaneously and also create multiple connections to the same service! Connections can also be grouped for simplicity.

Certain pro features are now also available in the freeware version of the popular chat client. Signin from multiple locations, customization through themes, retrieval of previous activity through the activity history are some of them. Pro users can also store their conversations on the Astra Cloud!

If you have installed Trillian on multiple platforms, you can use the sync feature and synchronize chat history and view it over multiple installs. This way, you never miss a message since your chats are shared across your desktops and phones.

Trillian 5 has better social network integration. Various networks are shown as tabs, which display feed content on mouse hover.Trillian handles twitter quite well and can manage your direct messages, replies and even re-tweets. Speaking of Facebook, you can check your inbox, synchronize messages and even chat. Likes and comments can be handled within Trillian itself. Trillian uses a system called SecureIM to encrypt messages and ensure security.

Positive Points:
  -  Extremely easy to use and intuitive interface.
  -  Supports most of the social media networks.
  -  Security features enhance privacy and other related issues.
  -  Available for Android and iOS enables it to be used on all devices and sync contacts and settings.

Negative Points:
  -  Comes bundled with some adware programs, which is pretty annoying.
  -  No support for Video Chat in AIM.
  -  Many features are restricted to the users of pro version only.

The latest version of Trillian is a marked improvement over its previous renditions. Changes in interface, social network management and focus on user convenience makes Trillian one of the most sought after chat-clients. However, to enjoy benefit of some features you are required to upgrade to pro version, which is disappointing. Overall, it is a pretty decent all in one messenger that supports almost all major chat clients and social networks and should be suitable for all.

Rating: 4/5
