Portable Miranda IM is a handy application that allows you to keep in touch with your friends using multiple instant messaging accounts. The main advantage of the program is that you can connect to more than one service at the same time.
This application makes it possible to chat with contacts from different networks using only one program interface. It supports some of the most popular messaging protocols such as ICQ, AIM, MSN and Yahoo.
All the basic features of the instant messaging clients such as sending files, keeping a message log and viewing the profile information of a contact are supported. You can set a custom status on every account and quickly open web pages such as the Yahoo inbox with one click.
Besides being a portable application that can be run from any location, the program is highly customizable and allows you to change the interface to suit your needs. You can customize the order of the protocols, the font colors, the icon set and much more.
The advanced user can find hundreds of settings to tinker with in the configuration window. You can easily get lost in there so be sure that you only change the parameters that are important to you.
The program features an advanced Ignore list that allows you to set the events that you want to ignore for all the contacts from the list, for the unknown contacts or only for certain contacts. You can ignore sent files, online notifications or all the events generated by a user.
Further customization of the application includes adding new extensions that allow you to connect to other networks or to enhance its functionality. If you have used this application before and you want to go mobile, you can import the contacts from a Miranda IM database.
The program has an easy to use interface that is very light on resources and provides you with all the features needed to keep in touch with your friends.
