i use flickim, meebo, beejive, and heyscan
but on edge i use heyscan, the only problem is that it signs your of your home computer. but besides that it runs fast on edge and i don't have any problems.
but if i am on wifi, or if i don't mind waiting i use beejive or flickim because they work the best, and include the buddy info for each person.

www.m.heyscan.com
i am not positive if it keeps you running, i don't believe so.
since its such a light version of AIM i don't think it stays open
but for some reason i can not get ANY of my four AIM clients to open right now.

I rearranged things on the main page to the apps that I use most often up top and the others I don't use often or ever toward the bottom. I then put all web links I use freqently on the second page: so far, Fox News, Drudge Report, Weather Underground, live sports scores, Fandango, Thesaurus, Dictionary, Facebook, Jokes of the Day, MineSweeper and Bejeweled.

I added Google, CalcNexus, Jive Talk as well as bookmarklets for a tip calculator, scientific calculator, unit converter and package tracker. I also did a lot of rearranging including putting Camera and Settings on the dock in place of Mail and Photos.

the only thing i've done is move iTunes to the 2nd page because i never use it. ever.
Man, that's a great point...I also never use the Stocks thing...so I got rid of both and got to fit more web clips on page one. Cool stuff.

i'm about to get ride of stocks aswell and replace it with a EIC link or Facebook. probably EIC because i check facebook enough as it is. another reason i did this was that i hated that there was 1 icon on the last row all by itself.

symmetry ftw.

I have pretty much all my bookmarks in some fashion on various home screens.

I've griped about the appearance of the icons in other threads. Y'all know what's wrong with it... I'll get over it...

But I also wish that they didn't auto-arrange to the left and top. It would be nice to make home screens with icons around the edge to better display your wallpaper (I'm thinking about that Jessica Alba thread...)

Oh right. It would be nice to have wallpaper behind those icons, too :p

I moved a few icons to a second screen, then I added a few forums I visit, the REAL Yahoo homepage (I really missed that) and the Pinpoint web app. It's more handy now, and the home screen looks cool all filled up.
