considering the reputation that aol has had with aim, it’s nice to know that jabber appears to be gaining strength. this reminds me that i’d really like to check out hotjabber and test the reliability of their agents :

“Agents make it possible to communicate from a Jabber client to virtually any other instant messaging system. When you have installed support for the client you want to emulate, i.e. ICQ, you can use your WinJab client in the same way as your ICQ client or your MSN client. With the help of agents WinJab can work as a client for all systems that has agent support. The agents are installed centrally at
the Jabber server as transport protocols and appear dynamically in your WinJab client under “Agents”. You never have to download these agents separetely, they appear automagically in your WinJab.”
