Also for those not looking for lots of features, pidgin will serve fine if you're not doing any webcamming or audio sorts of things. For text and sending files it will serve fine, plus i believe there is a good amount of support for the program.
Except file transfers will also be a lot slower because of the way they send files through a proxy.
