    Goodbye, Messenger; hello, alternatives

    By Ryan Matthew Pierson

    Which instant-messaging client will take the place of the world's most popular IM client?
    Skype has the inside track, but there are a number of useful alternatives, many of which connect you to multiple messaging platforms.

    The full text of this column is posted at WindowsSecrets.com/best-software/goodbye-messenger-hello-alternatives/ (paid content, opens in a new window/tab).

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    File transfer is weak?
    Can't understand this comment. I cannot think of anything easier than dragging and dropping files from Explorer into the skype window. While you cannot (yet) send a folder, this is not a big negative.

    My only complaint about skype is that it doesn't have faxing capability. That and the difficulty of searching for contacts, since the company stupidly ended searching by country.
