Maccing IM

Having spent far too long fighting both Proteus and Fire as a Mac OS X instant messaging solution, I discovered that the venerable Adium has had a huge rewrite and is now a multiple IM client. I gave it a quick try last night, and I have to say, it's pretty good - if you can ignore the ducks and if you turn off the sounds.

Worth a look. Especially as it's free...

Hmm... no MSN, though.

I'm getting on ok with Fire, now, except for the bizarre way it handles IRC, which I still find disturbing.

It was doing MSN last night for me [g]...

IRC-wise, you might want to try Conversation.

Oh, right. I couldn't see it on the website!

I'd rather have everything together, I think, so I guess I'll stick with Fire...

Never ignore the ducks. They are not to be trusted.

Thanks for the tip. The penguins never did it for me, either.
