What is it?

TurboChat is a way to quickly load your IM chat clients with a simple double click (or single click if in the Quick Launch bar!

 

What IM clients does it support?

Currently it will support AIM, WLM (formerly MSN), YIM, XFire, GAIM and Trillian!

 

Why did you make this?

I made this application because I used to run a few IM clients and one day I was tired of going to Start > Programs > {IM Client Shortcut). With this application, I could load whichever I wanted with one or two clicks.

 

What does this application do?

On your first run it will ask you which IM clients you want to load. After it loads the selected IM clients, it exits quickly. It takes a matter of nanoseconds to load your IM programs.

 

What do I do if I mess up?

A very small ini file will be created so that should anything go wrong, you simply delete the ini and restart the program.

I didn't download it because I don't use IM that much, but I don't get the point. Is this like a chat program preloader? Most chat programs put a icon in the system tray anyway so why would I want to have another program running to launch my IM program from the system tray when it would be there anyway? Maybe I'm just missing the point.

May want to re-read everything. It tells you it loads, opens your selected applications, then exits quickly. So the app doesn't stay running.
