As most of you know, I am a avid Mac user. I made the switch 4 years ago and keep my PC as a testing machine and doorstop. That said, the one thing I had to give up when I made the switch was Cerulean Studio’s Trillian, which gave me the ability to IM with anyone with a MSN, AOL, iChat, ICQ and jabber.
Worry no more, I have been introduced to Adium the hyper equivalent for Mac users. This sweet freeware can be downloaded at: http://www.adiumx.com/
Now I can connect to my colleagues with MSN, AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, .mac. Jabber, Lotus Same time, Google talk, Novell GroupWise and Yahoo Japan
Adium also has a broad swath of features that competitive IM clients do not have.
Free skins, free icons, large sound library just to name a few.
I still have to use iChat for video chats, but Adiums other capabilities make it my primary IM client.
