Is there a tool which will allow me to use all my IM identities from Yahoo | Google at the same time. I would prefer not to logout and login with a different IM identity if I have to communicate with a different set of users. Meebo doesn't allow me to do this either.

Meebo doesn't allow you to sign on to multiple instances of Gtalk and Yahoo? It's always worked for me... you just have to sign up to be a Meebo user, which as far as I know is still free. – Jessie Jun 3 '10 at 17:29

Take a look at Pidgin.

I'm assuming you're looking for a Windows/PC client.

Try Digsby.

In addition to Pidgin (my personal favorite) and Digsby, there is Trillian, which I believe was one of the original few programs that allowed this.

Pidgin as mentioned - great for windows

Adium - good for OS X

Meebo - online.

I know meebo allows multiple google accounts since I use it, yahoo should also work but I don't use multiple yahoo accts personally. There were other multi-protocol clients before too that did this like Miranda, Trillian, etc. the keyword here is "multi-protocol" im client.
