Best one 5 stars by TerryP Jun 13, 2010 (Read all my 87 reviews)
This is a small download, comes in a portable version, has a small footprint, and is devoid of fluff I don't need. It works with multiple protocols and has an amazing set of configurable features that can be tweaked. This is the IM to use for anyone needing a highly configurable basic chat client that works and can do without the resource hogging eye candy and juvenile gimmicks. show Review details

Add-ins make all the difference, but... 4 stars by BengalTigger Feb 05, 2008 (Read all my 8 reviews)
Miranda's use of add-in functionality is both a blessing and a curse. Add-ins allow Miranda's core developers to maintain their focus on the basic client while others create the additional optional functionality. Pros: Basic client has relatively low resource usage. With add-ons you get really nice features and visual improvements. In fact, with the more popular add-ons, Miranda is arguably superior to all of the other IM clients currently available. Cons: Choosing, downloading, installing, enabling, and configuring all of the add-ins is not for the faint of heart. Appearance of basic client is drab at best and is missing some features you might expect. I am sure many uninstall it based upon first appearance without giving it a second chance. show Review details
