Yahoo Messenger replacement?

I'd love to get my wife's machine off of M$ software. The only problem has been Yahoo Messenger. My wife is dependent on YM to talk with her family. My wife's family goes to the internet cafe to chat with her, so they don't have any control over what version of YM is being used. Not only do they chat, they use the webcam. Prior (a couple of years ago) I tried several Linux substitutes for YM, including Yahoo's own YM for Linux (which was the worst).

Hopefully things have changed though and there's a good substitute available for Linux now.

What is the best recommendation for a replacement for YM on Linux? It must be compatible with YM and it must be able to use the webcam.

Thanks for any suggestions,
