    I just wanted to know a good messager software like trillian for windows but for mac (allows you to connect to irc, icq, msn, yahoo and aim as well as have more then one user connected on each).

    That page does a good job comparing the various options. Looks really nice too. My favorite IM app (on any platform) is Proteus. Well worth the $15 I spent to register it. Adium is also pretty good, but obviously even with the price difference, I much prefer Proteus.

    well that one looks good . that green aim icon on there website looks very ugly. I'm into web designing and the hosting business so performance and looks is a plus on my end.

    Yep, Adium is the way to go. And with Adium going 1.0, Proteus can say good bye ;)
