    I hate Skype's client, yet it's what I use the most. I was all excited to read about Trillian and the possibility of using something other than Skype's crappy program, but a blog indicates that it might be losing that capability soon, so... poops.

    I don't care for using Steam as a chat client because if I'm on steam, I'm going to want to play something, and I'm terrible at chatting and playing. >.>

    Shoving aside Skype for Steam, the darker colors are much more pleasing to my eyes anyways.

    Since then, it has had those ads and has made things needlessly complicated.
    I don't know if MS's coders are responsible for the resource hogging, but I woudn't be surprised.
    The phone version makes me want to cut my fingers off with nail clippers.

    My PC ain't a potato so I don't get any stuttering or issues performance wise with Skype so I'll keep using it.

    And the overlay function is useful if you're into gaming.
    I prefer Steam myself, for the overall looks.

    The only thing I dont like about steam is that it can't save logs.
    We all have our demons. If we're not fighting them, then we've befriended them.

    I tend to keep a range of possible methods to get contacted by. I have my E-Mail (which I'm not using for social but encouraging for use related to commissions etc.) as well as a bunch of handles I use IM+ apps to keep signed into at once. Skype tends to be my main due to the most attention being from them. I'm happy with people just asking questions or chatting, so I keep them on usually.

    I tend to use Skype the most, but I use an old version since the new version is crap. I do have Trillian for AIM, YIM, and IRC, but I find myself using it less and less as more people seem to have Skype anyway.

    I used to ONLY use AIM for years. Then I changed to MSN and Skype from there. I mostly use Skype now, but will also use Steam when I forget to turn the messenger off.

    I've always hated FaceBook's messaging system.

    I mostly use Skype not out of preference but because that is what everyone else uses. if I had a choice it would be Google Hangouts. I agree that it would be nice to have a link like they have with Skype. <3

    Skype.

    The ability to downgrade to older (see: better) versions is the best part.
