Hey guys....

I saw all the talk about Adium in the other threads....
I use MSN only as my chat, therefore I only use MSN messenger for mac. Adium seems nice, but is it as good as the hype suggests???

Adium can be customized to look and work exactly like I want it to. It is the best IM client I have used on any platform. The only disadvantage it has is the lack of audio and video chat, which I rarely use anyway. When I do need that I use Skype.

You definitely should have included iChat and Skype in your list of clients.

Adium is awesome. It can use MSN and AIM accounts, so if you have one buddy that only uses AIM, there is no need to run a second program to talk to them. Lots of configurability.

The reason that I did not include iChat and Skype is because I already know that they are really good.

I wanted to know which is better out of the choices i have put.

How does iChat compare to Adium???

Then you must have seen the sticky thread that already has this poll on it:

Which AIM client is the best?
