    Where are the good IM clients?

    Please let me know if I'm missing out on a great one. I'm willing to pay for one.

    Adium is probably the only mulit-IM client I hear anyone mention.

    Trillian is a good one also, but it hasn't been released for Mac yet.

    Adium is the best one out there. There are a few others, but they are more basic than Adium.

    I wish there was something better and more simple.

    Yeah that's been "coming soon" since early 2008 :rolleyes:

    But all these people are developing great Twitter clients, it can't be much harder to make an IM Client. IM isn't dead!

    Define better and more simple. Adium is the best multi-IM client I've used on any platform, not just the Mac (I use Pidgin in Windows which isn't great but the other's I've tried have had barfably bad UIs). Of course it's no good if you need video support, but that's in libpurple's hands.

    What's not simple about Adium?

    Actually it is much harder. You have to deal with a bunch of different ports and crap, because AIM, Yahoo, MSN, etc. are all different.
