    Yeah, there's a version for the Mac. But it doesn't have video conferencing and pretty much sucks in general.

    Most of people here use Adium, Mercury Messenger and aMSN.

    Adium for that. But i use iChat becuase I only have AIM and gTalk accounts.

    As for video since I have a Powerbook, I got iChatUSBCam (now iUSBCam) and a 20 dollar Logitech webcam for notebooks and it works flawlessly and is detected as an iSight. http://www.ecamm.com/mac/iusbcam/

    I'm not sure if Pidgin has a Mac version or not, but that's what i use on my PC.
