I like how they integrated that dead aim feature of the little pop up telling you that someone has signed on...that's the only new feature I've found so far, but it's pretty cool.
**there's also a web-alert feature to alert you of breaking news / sports scores and stuff like that....I don't know if this is new but I never noticed it before.
/me waits for the trillian update

I don't know what version I have- but it came with a lot of clutter.They stuck shortcuts to AOL Broadband everywhere (three places I have found so far including my toolbar and Favorites list) plus there is an annoying advertising popup besides the Buddies List that comes on everytime and I have to close. I re-installed after my harddrive died a couple months ago. It wasn't like that before.

zippyjuan - to get rid of the popup when you sign on, go into Preferences (File->Options->Preferences). Then under the "Sign On/Off" section, look for the 4th to last check box. It should say, "Show AIM Today at sign on." Turn that off and it should be ok. If that doesn't work, then I dunno where the pop up is coming from, though I have 5.2.3292.

Thanks Eugene! I got rid of the stock ticker too. One less piece of electronic junk mail to throw out!:D

I'm using 5.0.2938. This is the last AIM that I could remove the ad on the top manually (by modifying some file) without using deadAIM or some kind.
