Score 73%
Description:

Licq is a multi-threaded multi-protocol chat client written mostly in C++. Supported protocols are AIM/ICQ and MSN. It uses an extensive plugin system to manage many different functions. The main gui is written using the Qt widget set. Licq is distributed under GPL with some special QPL exceptions for Qt.

Development is very ongoing, with new features and bugs fixed frequently. The current version should be very stable.

you need to compile the msn plugin at first before you can use it. If I remember correct, the tar-File already contains the msn plugin. So you have to download it, unpack it, go into the licq-1.3.0/plugins/msn directory and ./configure && make and "make install" afterwards as root

work with ICQ, which is a major plus when compared to Kopete.

and it starts faster, has easy to read chatlogs and now even supports typing notification (i.e. if the other side is typing). I'm really happy to be back to licq after about one year of absence.

Yeah, Kopete looks nice at the first glance, but program is still "raw", if I may say so.

I used to be a user of Licq for a year and half ago, and today am just forced to get the newest release of Licq (as I try to use as less GTK based apps as possible :) ). Thus Licq has become much versatile since the last time I used it.

If you just want something fast to chat on icq then licq is the way to go.
Licq is actually what mirabilis icq once looked like (before they began adding all the ads and useless plugins), it's simple and uncluttered.
