TerraIM

An AIM/iCQ alternative

TerraIM is an instant messaging client that connects to the AOL Instant Messenger network. Thus, one can use TerraIM with an existing AIM, ICQ, or AOL screen name. Just log in using your AIM screen name or ICQ number with TerraIM, and your regular buddy list will show up.

TerraIM has several useful features:

Offline Messaging

Thanks to DoorManBot, you can send messages to people who are offline. The messages are delivered once the person signs on, even if you have signed off by then.

Portability

TerraIM easily fits on a floppy, and requires no install. It is perfect for environments where AIM cannot be installed, such as school networks.

Aliasing

set an alias for a buddy and that alias is displayed everywhere instead of the person's screen name.

Invisible login

login directly to invisible mode, so no one suspects that you are online

Logging

TerraIM implements real time logging. All instant messages can be recorded to files.

Remote Control

leave TerraIM running at home and remotely check messages, change the away message, and download files.

Tabbing

you have the option of having all your instant messages with one window, with tabs to switch between them.

Skinnability

TerraIM is fully skinnable. Though currently there are only few skins available, more are being developed.
