    Which AIM client is the best?
    Hello,

    Which AIM client is the best? I would like to know, so I can use it and eventually get more comfortable with it. Please state why you like it, whether it's because of features, functionality, etc.

    Thanks!

    Adium is great I use it for MSN chat - but it does not support web cam yet.

    Not used AOLs own chat program on mac.

    iChat is great and should work with your web cam (Of course I am making perhaps a foolish assumption here - that you also have a MacBook??)

    Ichat is very sexy - it's already installed as default - it's apple software so fits in with the OS very nice - I'd go for iChat if I were you.

    However if you have an MSN account as well - then go for Adium as it will allow you to sign in to both AOL and MSN accounts at the same time (but remember - no web cam support yet)

    Adium is extremely useful. Unless you are going to do video/audio chats, then you need iChat.

    I would have voted for iChat if it could communicate with MSN, Yahoo and other clients. Since it is not the case Adium is my first choice.

    I agree completely - this is the only reason I don't use iChat.

    Ditto. So I have to use Adium with MSN because that's what all my friends use. But I'd love to use ichat if I could. Maybe Apple will change this in the future.

    I think he wanted AIM meaning AOL Instant Messenger. For that usage to ME, iChat is the best. I love the interface and it works great with Video and Audio chat also.

    As stated already, for Yahoo and MSN I use Adium, but for my many friends on AIM, I use iChat and nothing else.

    What's the chance of iChat opening up to yahoo? I primarily use yahoo IM beta and it supports vid and file transfer like a champ. I've heard the profound abillity of iChat's vid support but I don't know anyone on it. Can it be an all in one client like adium? That would really rock. But til then Yahoo Mes. Beta will do. I have adium but don't use it.

    none of my friends use anything but aim so i use ichat 99% of the time. the other 1% belongs to adium because its customization options are really nice.
