Nope, never found any combo I like.I use Adium - Yahoo, MSN, AIM, Googletalk, and XFire.
@ Benjamindaines - you don't like the way it looks? Even with all the customizations available to change the appearance of the buddy list and chat windows??
I don't chat much but when I do, I use iChat. I tried Adium for a while but found it to be a bugger when you simply want to exchange a screenshot file, it wouldn't work.
I tried a more recent version where that bug was supposed to be fixed and it didn't work either so I let it at that and never tried it again.
What do you guys use? I have Adium and really like that, but sometimes use iChat and never use AIM 4.7 for mac.
I just made a change. Have been using Adium exclusively (so I can monitor all my friends/family - they are on different IM's). But, I also like iChat a lot - especially since I discovered that pictures in the address book show up in iChat (and email) so I took AIM off of Adium and now run iChat for AIM and Adium for the rest. Not particularly pleased with having to run two apps for the same thing, but until iChat decides to cover all of them..................
Oh, but it does.
Thanks for that info did not realize that. After reading all the steps, think I will hold off though: it sounds to "linuxey" to me. But I appreciate your telling me of this.
Hey Papa, give it a try, it's a piece of cake to get it running!
Just follow the instructions on the link, and you're fine!
There's just one problem. Apparently, file transfer and video chat does not work through jabber...unfortunately!
Ok - you talked me into it........if you hear a big explosion in the distance in the middle of the night you will know it is me and I am having problems.........
Same way you did for MSNFinished! Successfully have iChat showing MSN IM!!!! Thanks!! Now, how do I add Yahoo?? I have an idea but thought I would check first. Too bad they took away the Rep - will have to give you 2 V reps!!
I never use iChat because it's an MSN world we live in.
