    I've got Microsoft Messenger for my Mac. It comes with Office, which obviously does cost you, but I got mine for free through staff discounts in a company I don't work for. Gotta love rorting the system.

    If you want something free and easy, Trillian is an all-in-one Messenger program. I haven't used AIM or ICQ in years, so haven't used Triallian in a while, so there may be something better out there now, but it's worth a try.

    Cheers.

    Messenger for mac 7 does the job fine for me here.

    Its free, but does not allow video chat, voice, hand drawn messages, winks and several other features.
    I never used them myself, but alternatives do offer support for them.
    I tried adium, but it just seemed like a pain to setup imo. (im picky about how things look)

    I also recommend Adium. One of the best OS X apps, and in my opinion, one of the few class apps in all of computerdom.
