    Looking for a non command line gui based super minimal multi platform chat client.

    Possibly one that runs entirely from the menubar.

    Looking for super small footprint, no frills whatsoever.

    I have spent a great deal of time looking and can't seem to find anything remotely close to this.

    (would also be happy to hear about any multiclient chat app that operates entirely from a menubar dropdown)

    I haven't used adium because I don't have a Mac so I'm not sure how small it is though The smallest chat client I tired is Pidgin. http://www.pidgin.im/download/mac

    Trance thanks for the reply Adium is actually a pre compiled port of pidgin for the mac.

    I'm pretty sure what I'm looking for doesnt exist.. basically i want pidgin/adium that runs entirely from the menubar as to make it useful while using fullscreen apps.
