Mercury Messenger is a popular Java based MSN client.
With Mercury you can do the same things as with your normal
messenger. But Mercury has some additional functionality that a typical
does not have.
Mercury has an interchangeable interface, and includes some
main Java Looks, sich as Metal, CDE/Motif, and GTK+.
The software works with an HTML system and with these you can
change the looks of your contact list, conversations, event pop-ups
and contact cards.
