    They have MSN Messenger for Mac, although it is not as robust as the PC version--go figure :rolleyes:

    Apple also just came out with it's own messenger called iChat which is very cool. It's compatible with all AOL Messenger User Names.

    I am not sure about ICQ, but there are a ton of 3rd party messenger apps available.

    You can check Version Tracker to see what's available.

    I believe that ICQ is available, as well as a third party app that includes ICQ called Fire. You can check under the downloads section on Apple's Mac OSX site

    ICQ has been available on the Mac for a long, long, long time.

    Check and check the download pages.

    Also there are a few 3rd party apps that allow you to to connect to multiple IM services, like Proteus and Fire.
