Miranda IM

Fed up with using so many applications at once to connect up to several networks? I reckon most of us would have MSN Messenger (now, the latest known as Windows Live Messenger, which an extremely resource hungry application), Yahoo Messenger (the latest news about its collaboration with MSN Messenger so that users from both networks can cross-chat), ICQ (or AOL), Skype, GoogleTalk, Jabber…. and so on. Imagine running all those softwares at the same time, and they are sure to run your system resources dry in no time. Why not get a all-in-one application?

Introducing Miranda IM (Internet Messaging) client, which is a multi protocol instant messenger client for Windows. Miranda IM uses very little memory and works very fast. Available in a small size file, it can even be stored in a single floppy drive (though I know nowadays, who would really use floppy drives; USB thumb drive perhaps).
