Default I Need a New Multi-Messenger Client

To put it bluntly, Trillian is ugly, and the few decent skins they have for it never match my Windows themes.

I need MSN, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, Jabber and IRC, and I really don't need to have more than one IM client open at a time, especially given how many apps I'm already running 24/7.

Does anyone know of a good multi-messenger client that you can recommend?

Trillian is NOT the only one.

Personally my favorite was Kopete, but it's only available for KDE.

I'm asking what other ones people here recommend.

Other than trillian the only other one which is even worse is Pidgin. If you think Trillian is ugly wait till you see that.

gAIM is not that bad. I just don't like their containers.

At least they don't use that baby-shower blue.

Pidgin (used to be GAIM) is by far my favorite. I've used it for a long time, and it's always treated me well.

I thought everything was able to do that. I know my wife has AIM and YAHOO people on her live messenger.
