I've seen that AOL's AIM express has a beta version of their Instant Messenger. Is anyone useing it? I'd like to know if you are able to minimize the aim window and it will blink when someone is replying to a message. I don't have OS X yet and it's difficult to keep having to minimize my internet page everytime I'm talking to someone because the aim window can be behind several other windows I may have open.

i highly recommend Fire for X. It is a superb program, I endup using AOL IM and ICQ, fire can understand both, also was using Yahoo IM, (why don't all my friends use the same protocol?), and Fire was able to use that too. All from the same buddy list.

And use, it blinks in your dock when you have a reply.
