    There's a link in the article, but here's Cerulean Studios little preview on it:

    Looks cool but Id like the user stuff on the top rather then the bottom. Guess I'll just have to try it when it comes out. I have a Trillian Pro account but I've switched to MSN Live since it does most of the stuff I used in Trillian, altho I like the logging in Trillian better.

    I know the link is there, but as I referenced I can't get to any IM related websites from work ;)

    I may poke around when I get home and see if I can find a usable beta for it

    Tile view? Great way to kill the functionality.

    I fail to see what this new app does to deserve the current buzz it's receiving, even after reading the various articles which have popped up. Anyone care to enlighten me to what makes this amazing, or revolutionary?

    Looks pretty but its bloated, quite happy with Live Messenger at the moment - although it refused to connect at all yesterday saying it was my problem then connected no problem at all today.

    Looks sharp but it's probably like EP says...
    Yeah because anything past Windows Messenger 5.1 ISN'T bloated?

    You llama. :p

    Spose you can use Meebo in the mean-time. Looks like Trillian have "borrowed" a few ideas from Meebo anyway.

    Like file sharing that works 100% of the time and File serving. hehe

    Submitted for alpha testing. We will see.

    It really is moving along nicely. Been using it solely on my laptop for 6 months now. lots of great ideas still to come according to the blog.
