    Default Adium X - Multi protocol Instant Messaging for Macs

    Mac users check out www.adiumx.com

    Nifty little client supports IM over different protocols, all in 1 interface!

    Formats supported include AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo!, Rendezvous, Yahoo! Japan, Gadu-Gadu, Jabber, Napster, Lotus Sametime and others.

    No need to open different clients to chat with your friends on MSN,ICQ,AIM etc...

    Miranda is a good alternative too, with LOTS of plugins for it. works with windows too. Adiumx only works for MACs

    Hi fellow Miranda user (I suppose you are! )

    You can get the latest beta from here:
    http://blog.miranda-im.org/

    Some plugins I use:
    Isee (ICQ Protocol)
    tabSRMM (Messanging Module)
    SmileyAdd (Emoticons)
    History++ (Logging module)
    PopupPlus (for little Popups that come out)

    You can get these plugins at forums.miranda-im.org

    hmm.... been using AdiumX since last year man.... one of the better and customisable multi-client chat tool for Mac-users.

    try downloading their message style - mine's in the Metal Gear Solid look complete with sound alerts.. damn fun

    Here's a pretty cool Bluetooth/SMS utility for the mac...

    http://www.reelintelligence.com/Blue...te/index.shtml

    The program detects the proximity of your mobile phone and if you move out of its reach, screensaver can be turned on automatically, iTunes/DVD Player will pause and even your iChat status is set to Away. SMS logs, fully integrated with Address Book... I like!

    AFAIK, the other clients (Miranda, Gaim) do not have voice/video support.
