Mac only: Trillian’s stepped up its multi-protocol game significantly on the Mac platform, fixing a whole bunch of items missing or jaggy in the alpha release, and adding Facebook and Twitter integration, Growl notifications, a better chat history layout and more.
The major new features will be fairly recognisable to users of the Trillian alpha, but there’s also a good deal to recommend the beta for newcomers too. The majority of changes and fixes are listed at the Cerulean Studios blog:
- List views of multiple sizes
- Growl notifications
- Chat history with viewer
- Twitter feeds
- Facebook news feeds
- MSN MPOP
- XMPP-based Facebook Chat
- Contact info card popups
- Avatar chooser
- Mac-specific keyboard shortcuts
- Sound and notification preferences
- Universal binary support, and
We know Trillian users are particular about what they like to see in their IM client — or else they would still use the default iChat, no? Tell us what you think of Trillian Beta for Mac in the comments.
