Which messenger program is the best?

All the messenger programs seem to have one thing or another defunct. Is there one that is universal that doesn't have so many bugs and still offers the most popular features of a messenger program?

I don't use IM but I've heard a lot of good things said about Trillian in the computer forums I visit.

I just use Facebook, but it isn't quite a messenger program... Mozilla, the same company that made FireFox, makes an email program named ThunderBird. It would be worth looking into.

I don't use a messenger program, but I've heard good things about the Pony Express. But it was only out West.

I had quite some good time with Miranda IM, PSI and Pidgin. For the moment, I sticked to Pidgin (because of spamming bots that weren't possible to be banned in Miranda). PSI is has some features that I love, but development is rather slow.
