At least when using Gaim 2 (OK, it's not been officially released yet, but beta5 is working perfectly fine), I get visual cues to what tabs contain new information. The top of the tab goes green if someone is typing something to me at the moment (only for protocols that support this, of course, such as jabber), red if there's a new message on the channel, and blue if there's a new message to me on the channel. There's also a really nice libnotify-plugin that will show a popup with the beginning of the message as a popup.
No need to poll the tabs.
