Which ICQ client?


I'm really curious what you guys are using. There are plenty of clients out there. Perhaps licq which I'm using now isn't the best app...

Isn't BitchX a IRC-client?

Gaim for sure, I've been using it for over a year now and it's all I've ever needed... it's nice to have all the chat clients in one window with tabs.. keeps the clutter down.

I have tried GAIM, but as soon as micq 0.4.9.4 appeared ( it already can transfer files ) I came back to mICQ

Yep, micq all the way! It doesn't take much resources, is comfortable, finally I can transfer files with it and I like because I can use it when I'm out of X.

I often use ssh sessions to my server at home (when I'm at university or at a friend's place etc) so graphics are no real option.
Therefore I love CenterICQ.
It supports not only ICQ, but also AIM, MSN and a few others and works the best for me
