Trillian for Web Build 631: Happy Trilloween!

Pirate Theme

October has arrived, which means Halloween is right around the corner!  To ensure you’re adequately prepared for this exciting time of year, we’ve released a new update to the web-based version of Trillian.  Build 631 includes a minor bugfix and an amazing new Halloween theme, complete with a raging battle between an octopus sea monster and a gang of merry pirates!  If you haven’t tried Trillian for Web yet, now is a great time to give it a spin.  Simply visit our brand new seasonally-inspired home page at and enter your Astra Username and password to get started.  We’ve also released two new spooky avatars available exclusively on Trillian for Web, so be sure to check it out!

Join us in celebrating the season and things that go bump in the night.  We’ll be back soon with another update on Trillian for Windows 4.1 – stay tuned! We hope you enjoy the update.

  8. DiamondNRG Says:

    @Viki … I believe I already answered you in the forums. Where did you hear that it does video conference features? It does not.

    I installed Astra 4.1 but I didn’t get the Halloween theme. Is there somewhere I can download it separately? Thanks!

  10. DiamondNRG Says:

    @ironLotus, it is part of Trillian WEB not the Windows client.

    Again, the only problem I have come across with the Trillian for Web application is that Firefox users are kinda up the creek. It sits there at the Loading page for about 15 minutes, doing nothing, whereas when you use IE (heaven forbid), it loads up and runs within 30 seconds. Firefox 3.5.3 (newest stable) + Flash 10 r32 (newest stable). Same problem from my Ubuntu box, running 3.0.14 + the newest flash for Linux.

    @VE6AY Maybe you’ve got an extension that’s conflicting, or maybe something in your OS? I just logged in to Trillian for Web in Firefox 3.5.4 in Vista 64, no problems. Loaded and booted up in less than 30 seconds.

    Ben, I’ve tried everything. Disable all addons (FlashBlock, AdBlock Plus, NoScript), disabled many plugins, ran it in 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Firefox. Nothing. Start it in IE, loads up in about 5 seconds, 32-bit and 64-bit. Go figure.
    Oh well. I’ll try again when they come out with 64-bit Flash for Windows.
