Still not satisfied with your messenger? With so many messengers in the web sphere here is another good Java IM I came across called MovaMessenger. Graphics wise this one is really good and it connects to almost all services one can think of. Initially you have to go through the typical registration procedure like any other messenger client.
The services that you can connect to is MSN, Yahoo, AIM, ICQ, Gtalk, QQ, Jabber, Gadu Gadu, Groupwise, IRC, SIMPLE, Zephyr. Most of the names you have never even heard of but this is the most extensive list of services you can connect with that I know of which is a serious plus point for this messenger. It has the typical features that of any messenger with the options to set you status to Available, Away, Busy and Invisible besides renaming, deleting, blocking and adding friends.
The keys take a bit of practice to get used to as compared to other messengers. But you will love the interface, the default interface is orange but the interesting part is you can changes skin colors as per your liking. The application has some cool animations as well. Like the chat balloon popping up while in conversation or the chat text coming up during chat if someone new has started chatting, etc. Could not get a sound alert during testing but I am pretty sure it should work.
Try it, it’s pretty neat, cool graphics, friendly interface and a wide range of service connectivity. Overall they have not done a bad job at all.
