    Everytime I log onto aim and try and instant message, aim always closes and I have to relaunch, several times everytime I use it. Has anyone else had this problem? Its very annoying, and I dont know how to fix it..

    Use iChat, it works on AIM too, if you were using it already then uh... I can't help you sorry.

    Also, Adium works well. It is my favourite chat program, as it allows you to use multiple chats at once (MSN, AIM, etc).

    Yeah I've had that problem with AIM, so I just removed the app and now I use iChat.

    its because AIM has not been updated in 4 years, it only works properly on panther and lower

    I use ichat on my new MB with no problems. Use your same aim id.

    And I run Leopard 10.5.3

    yeah ichat for the 1 ONE person i have to talk to on AIM.

    yahoo for macs isnt too bad now they have voice call support.however voice in chat rooms,photoshare still doesn't work.

    I use AIM exclusively but Adium is the best IM program by far. I only use iChat for when my friends want to have a 3-way video chat. ;)

    I would put another vote in for Adium. It's robust and frequently updated. It also supports plugins and multiple IM protocols.

    can you use adium from video chat with people? like you can with ichat? And can you put all your friends from different chat clients on one buddy list?

    I'm pretty sure you can't video chat, but I know you can talk with your Yahoo!, AIM, MSN and Gmail buddies (plus so much more) all at once! You really can't go wrong with Adium, in my opinion. Adiumx.com for more details. :)
