Last week Cerulean Studios celebrated the fact that 9 years have passes since Trillian was first introduced to the public. And to mark this joyous occasion, the company behind the multiprotocol instant messaging app has announced the reintroduction on Trillian for Web. The great thing about Trillian for Web, as the name so adequately points out, is that you can IM your friends via Trillian from anywhere on the web – all you need is a web browser and an internet connection.

“Trillian for Web provides a seamless transition between the desktop and the web by using the exact same user interface seen in Trillian Astra for Windows’ Cordonata skin! All the contacts are in the same place, with the same icons and the same buttons and the same chat windows - even the typing notifications have been pulled through. Even better, your contact list is fully synchronized and preserved, including groups, meta contacts, custom renames, etc. There is no longer any need to set everything up again when you switch between platforms,” explained Cerulean Studios.


Here are the bits and pieces you can expect to get from Trillian for Web:
- Single sign-on: use your Trillian Astra account to sing into all Trillian-based services.
- Support for Trillian Astra, WLM, Yahoo!, AIM, ICQ, MySpaceIM, Jabber, Google Talk
- Typing notifications, email notifications
- Smooth vector-based emoticons
- Buzz support
- Select the status message of your choice; set and view avatars.
- Change displayname
- Offline contacts folder
- Add and remove contacts
- Update browser tabs/taskbar with message alerts
- Profile integration
- Color themes
- Suspend / resume sessions: your session is not lost when you are disconnected from the internet or you close the web browser; instead it is preserved and made available to you’re the next time you sign in.
- MetaContacts and groups
- Mute sounds
- Contact authorizations
- Generic “system tray” notification framework
- Basic mail alerts; click alert to open web mail in browser
- Basic keyboard controls

“Trillian for Web is open to any existing Trillian Astra beta tester, but will eventually be a part of our premium service offering,” added Cerulean Studios. “Until further notice, we’ll be opening access to everyone regardless of license to ensure we can get as much testing on the system as possible, but please remember that access will be limited to paying customers upon final release. Given the new nature of Trillian for Web, you should expect periodic outages and other problems to crop up as you use the product.”
