Windows only: Trillian 5 Beta is a very slick-looking multi-chat client, and it makes being signed into 10 networks at once seem manageable. If you're one of Trillian's many fans, you owe yourself a test drive of this new version.

Trillian 5 Beta is a Streamlined Messaging Client with Much-Improved Looks

Trillian's picked up a more compact and Windows-7-friendly look, along with an all-in-one menu button that will look familiar to testers of Firefox 4. Using the "paintbrush" button in Trillian's top panel, you can quickly set Trillian as a wider social media deck, or as a compact, easily-hidden IM bar.

There's Foursquare support (even with check-ins), synchronized chat history across all clients, and a general feeling of refinement in Trillian 5 Beta. It's a free download for Windows systems only. Found something you like, or wish you could change, in this release? Spill it in the comments.
