I used to use that, I use Trillian now.

Which does allow Skype, but still required that I actually had Skype running to use that, lacked editing/deleting messages, and frequently dropped lines.

Nothing can replace Messenger for me.

I prefer the way Messenger keeps the chatlogs more then how Skype does.

Customization wise I love Messenger. You can change the whole skin/layout of Messenger, use different colored text, put in your own emotes, different fonts, see other people's fonts, have animated avatars, your own background in your chat window, able to do handwriting to draw random doodles. ; -;

All Skype has is change the font for yourself.

Awww, man. This is terrible. The main reason I use MSN is for the easy photo sharing. (I also enjoyed the doodling immensely before they removed it from windows live messenger) Since I collect all my pictures, I can find them more easily from my hard drive. No need to get an image hosting site or have the other person download the file to look at it with MSN's photo sharing...

I really hope they implement a feature like this (at least for 1 on 1 chats) into Skype, instead of the current file sharing system. At least I've already migrated over to Skype for general chatting. But I've still been using MSN with Mili for the one feature I can't live without. ;_;

It's not like MS hasn't already driven MSN Messenger into the fucking ground over the last god knows how many fucking years anyways, good riddance I say.

Even though I don't really do much chatting, I'll miss MSN, cause it was first messenger I ever used /=

I use the facebook chat anyway, but you could always use this.
