Default QUICKIM vs IM+

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone here have hands on experience with both?
I'm only interested in the msn, but I was wondering which program would be best to buy overall for performance and user friendlyness
thanks :D

I also hear QUICKIM uses less data because of the way it's setup... is this true?

IM+ allows you to use Yahoo, ICQ, Jabber etc. whereas Quick IM is MSN only. It also is reported to be the most stable of all the IM programs.

Sorry! My old english teacher would rake me over the coals for that poor sentence structure. IM+ is the most stable. (I have used both programs, but am not a power user; that assertion is based upon what others have said)

IM+ plus all the way, has way better luck with it over Verichat and Ramble. Issues I had with others was random sign offs, with IM+ this has NEVER happened.
