Default the new "aim"

The new aim is amazing.. its in beta but its sweet.. the link to dl it is here
http://channels.netscape.com/wrap/li...beta.adp?aolp=

some new feautres ive noticed:
tabbed browing with different sns.. instead of having multiple windows open

no more limit in how much u can type in a specific amount of time (like the red yellow green thing)

easier way to edit away message / put one up

easier way to delete sns. just hit delete on keyboard

ne thing else u wanna know lmk

ps im not sure this is the correct place to put it

triton would be a lot better if you could change the port it runs on (hopefully that feature will be added)

right now i need to run AIM on port 80 (And any other program for that matter) in my school since all other ports are blocked (other then FTP)

GAIM/Adium>Trillian>AIM.

Gaim and Adium let you choose which port you go through.

GAH i'm so confused about ports and nonsense. What's Trillian, and what's GAIM? I got the new AIM and to be honest with you, i like the old AIM's "feel"

Trillian and Gaim are 1 program that can be used wit multiple IM clients. Instead of having 5 clients in your pc, you can have just one, Trillian.

okay so Trillian combines things like AIM, MSN Messanger, and Yahoo Messanger in to one? Or is it a whole nother messaging program?
