    I use AIM the most, so I voted for that, but I use MSN and Yahoo! too.

    MSN has video conferencing (when I get that stupid webcam)

    And Yahoo... uh I dunno why I have it anymore. Refusal to let go?

    I use ICQ 90+% of the time. The rest would be AIM.

    ICQ. I dont get the idea about MSN, what did we need another instant messenger program for? Once I tryed to give MSN a change, but it did more damage than good on my com so I deleted it again.

    MSN rocks by boat. Then comes ICQ. Yahoo is very distant. AIM doesn't even make the list. I spit on its shadow.

    ICQ is the instant messenger I prefer. I also have AIM, but I don't turn it on very often.

    MSN IM and AIM. MSN is better I think, but it seems like more people have AIM, so I use both.

    I have ICQ, AIM, and MSN. I'm hardly on ICQ anymore.... but I'm still on AIM and MSN often.

    For those of you too lazy to check my profile, my AIM handle is mojo4marajade, my MSN is homeyddt@hotmail.com, and my ICQ# (good luck!) is 42683634.

    The only reason that I use AIM is because more people have it. I don't like the program as much as ICQ though.

    ICQ only! I've had it longer than anybody, almost. Signed up on January 1, 1997. Wow! 5 years ago yesterday!

    Yahoo is clearly best. It has offline messages, typing sounds, buzzers, and the coolest feature as of yet introduced, IMviorments, in which the chat background has an animated enviorment, such as the fish tank.
