What IM Software: Uses Tabs instead of multi-windows & MSN ready

I have a three monitor setup and don't need lots of windows open. Indeed my right monitor handles Amorak, ktorrent, kmail and has room for an IM application.

All my mates etc are on MSN as am I. I use kopete at the moment but what I really want is something like an IRC app where there is one window and convos are in several tabs.

Question is, does any program do this?

Before I start to compile what will probably be 10 libraries, can I just confirm it can do multi chat within one window?
