in stead of looking for multi -protocol chat clients I turn all my friends to AIM so I can use iChat all the time :D Even people who use PCs have aim, and I have them on my list. But of course first I have to make them start use AIM for chatting with me. For switching them from MSN to AIM I use Adium :D

i'm kinda used to adium now. i'm not sure i'd be able to handle the switch back to trillian. trillian is a little late with this one.

That looks really cool and I'd probably use it. Now I want it.

looking forward to trying it. i use adium for yahoo and google, but there's no video, which is why i still use ichat av. does anyone know if trillian will support video?

Awesome! I love trillian but I am going to be getting a mac book pro once leopard is released so I was thinking I was going to miss trillian on the mac side. My bf uses adium though and really likes it so we'll see...I might use one messenger on my mac side and one on the windows side!

This is neat. I like trillian on my PC but they have a long way to go to catch up with Adium for Mac.
