AIM triton

Looks like AOL is working on a non-crappy version of AIM. How exciting. Less obtrusive ads, tabbed chats, sexy interface. Slightly confusing - but hey, it’s new and less sucky. I used it for a bit before school this morning and I was impressed with what I saw. I’ve been dreading what the next incarnation of AIM would look like for a while now because each subsequent release gets more ugly and more bloated. It’s nice to see them taking a different route.

If you take the tour it says something along the lines of “We don’t target your ads based on what you e-mail. That would be creepy.” I love google but I thought that was a pretty funny jab they took at them. :stuck_out_tongue:

Check it out guys it looks somewhat promising. There’s even new ugly smilies to replace my beloved little pixely dude(tte)s. Good for most of you, bad for me :frowning:
