Messenger Plus! 5

What is Messenger Plus! 5?

Messenger Plus! is a freeware add-on for Windows Live Messenger and Skype . The software provides additional functionality to Microsoft's Instant messaging client Windows Live Messenger by adding its own controls to the main interface. These controls affect Messenger's behaviour and appearance, often through additional dialog boxes. A set of text formatting codes similar to BBCode (people who don't use Messenger Plus! will still see standard unformatted text with the BBCode still in place). Contact list clean-up. Showing statistics about the user's contacts and allowing him to remove people who removed him or he never talks to. Tabbed chatting (all the conversations in the same window). This feature existed in Messenger Plus! before Windows Live Messenger 2011 added native support for tabbed chatting. Emotion sounds. Custom sounds which can be send to other Messenger Plus! users.
