Trillian Pro 3.1.7

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 7/24/2007 | | 10 Comments »

Trillian is a proprietary multiprotocol instant messaging application for Windows created by Cerulean Studios that can connect to multiple IM services, such as AIM, ICQ, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, IRC, Novell GroupWise Messenger, Bonjour, Jabber, and Skype networks. Trillian connects to multiple instant messaging services without the need of running multiple clients. Users can create multiple connections to the same service, and can also group connections under separate identities to prevent confusion. All contacts are gathered under the same contact list. Contacts are not bound to their own IM service groups, and can be dragged and dropped freely.

Trillian is a closed-source application, but the Pro version can be extended by plugins. Plugins by Cerulean Studios itself include spell-check, weather monitor, a mini-browser (for viewing AIM profiles), Winamp song title scroller, stock exchange monitor, RSS feedreader, and conversation capabilities for the Logitech G15 keyboard, as well as a plugin for the Jabber and Bonjour networks. Others have developed various plugins, such as a games plugin which can be used to play chess and checkers, a protocol plugin to send NetBIOS messages through Trillian, a plugin to interact with Lotus Sametime clients, a plugin to interact with Microsoft Exchange, a POP3 and IMAP email checker, or an automatic translator for many European languages to and from English. There is a plugin to interact with Skype, SkyLlian, but it needs Skype to be installed in order to be used.

    thanks LST for your idea,
    i thought of that but there is other problem. we don't have cd rom nor USB port in our college comp. if i download this application in my college & try to open them will it work. pls reply fast. there is no method to remove password protection of window administrator or gain the administrator password without knowledge of the administrator or with the knowledge of administrator.

    "if i download this application in my college & try to open them will it work."

    Yes it will work. Just install/extract to a partition other than System partition (Usually C:). If you have only one partition create a folder in C:\ and extract into that.

    I'm sorry i do not know any such software. No one in our team does (all of us except NoobServ sucked at chemistry)

    There are some interesting points in time in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article, thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as well
