The best IM client for OSX that has video chat, with matching iPhone client?

All right, I'm wondering what the best IM client for OSX is at the moment? Preferably with video chat and an iPhone version.
I'm currently trying trillian on OSX, seeing if its any good. And I've had a look at adium but trillian looks better.

Edit: I don't like trillian or adium, although I've not look at adium that close.

Any thoughts?

Give Meebo a try.

No, it doesn't have video chat, but it's integration with iPhone is great!

You log in on meebo.com, also download the meebo (free) app for iPhone.

the 2 apps (web and iphone) can be logged in at the same time, and chat histories are kept at both locations.

If you're logged in at Meebo.com, no push messages will be sent to your iPhone
If you're logged in at Meebo.com, but you're idle, push messages will be sent.
If you closed your web browser, you can chat on the iphone, and the message history will be at meebo.com

Thats really cool, I've got the meebo app and have signed in online, thanks -- great suggestion!
I did notice, when I "IM" my contacts it shows an audio/video chat option

Unrelated -- just noticed .... LOL MR has changed the Apple to a Windows logo! aaah!
