    Looking for one app to consolidate at least AIM and Skype, facebook and twitter, maybe even google messenger would be nice as well : )

    Recommendations? Thanks : )

    Adium can handle Aim, Google talk and Facebook. I don't think it can handle twitter yet, but a quick Google search revealed something about a new update currently in beta which will have twitter integration.

    Unfortunately it cannot handle skype but as far as I know you won't have a lot of luck there. Apparently skype uses some sort of proprietary system so there are no third party skype chat apps. I could be wrong, but I searched for one once before and got that answer from somewhere.

    Adium does have a plugin which works with skype, so you can control it from within one Adium window, but the real skype program is still running somewhere.

    The 4.x beta version has Twitter integration.
